The CSCS card is a way to verify that people working on construction sites have the appropriate knowledge and training. This helps prevent on-the-job mishaps that endanger everyone's health and safety. You obtain a CSCS card by taking the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test. There are 150 CITB test centres nationwide including in Torquay.
What to Expect in the Test
When you arrive, the on-site staff will check your ID and confirm that you have arranged to take the exam at that time. Then, for security purposes, you will take a photo. The test itself takes 45 minutes and includes 50 multiple choice questions. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate of achievement.
If you don’t pass, you can register for the next exam three days after the first one. You should also purchase review materials to help you prepare for the retake.
