The CITB Specialist Supervisory Health, safety and environment test and CITB Managers and Professionals Health, Safety and Environment test both consist of 50 multiple-choice questions. The tests feature questions focused on basic health, safety and environmental construction topics, as well as specialist questions for managers/supervisors.

To pass the specialist supervisory test, you will need a score of 45/50, while passing the managers test will take a score of 46/50.
