In March 2017, Young Persons Opportunities Project became an Internet Test Centre for CITB/CSCS. We can now book and test our students from the construction sites for the CSCS Card. You and/or your company can also sit the test with us in YPOP.  

What is CSCS?


Although most people are familiar with CSCS, there are many views expressed regarding its purpose and what it means to have a CSCS card. To summarise:

A CSCS card is:

  • A certification of the cardholder’s identity

  • A certification of the cardholder’s qualifications

  • A certification of the cardholder’s training


A CSCS card is not:

  • A passport to gain entry to site

  • A competency card

  • A guarantee of a cardholder’s competence

  • A Health and Safety card

  • A card for off-site employees

  • A certification of the cardholder’s fitness to work

  • A record of the cardholder’s work experience


Holding a CSCS card verifies your identity and shows employers that you have the required training, qualifications and experience for the type of work you carry out on a construction site.  Most major contractors and home-builders require workers on their sites to hold a valid CSCS card.
