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 CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test. There are 150 CITB test centres nationwide including in Worthing.
What to Expect in the Test
Before taking the CITB exam, you’ll need to provide the on-site staff a valid ID. They will verify that you are scheduled for testing. And as per safety guidelines, the staff will need to take your photo.
The test takes 45 minutes to complete and consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. Once you’ve completed the test, you will be given your certificate of achievement that displays your test results.
If you don’t pass the CSCS exam, you are allowed to re-register for another try three days later. Furthermore, you should be sure to purchase revision material, especially if you fail the first time. Studying will help you be ready to retake the exam. This material is located at this link
