Which card is right for me?


The card you need will depend on the type of work you will be carrying out on site, and what qualificaions you have. Each card requires a different level NVQ.

As each individual is different, give us a call or send us a message, and we will do our best to help you with the correct card.




How long does the test take?


You are given 45 Minutes to complete your test, and there are 50 Questions.




My card is about to expire, how do i renew it?


This depends on the card you have, and when you first applied for it!

If you have a blue Skilled Worker, gold Supervisor or Advanced Craft, black Managers card, white Professional Qualified card, or white Academically Qualified card, you simply need to retake the relevant CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test!

If you applied for a green Labourers card AFTER July 2014, (and so you already have a Level 1 Award) then you only need to retake the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Operative Test.

If you applied for a green Construction Site Operative/Labourers card BEFORE July 2014, you will need to complete a 1 Day Health & Safety Course in order to apply for a new green Labourers card.

If you have a white Construction Related Occupation (CRO) card, you may need to move to a Partner Scheme - give us a call for more information!

To apply for your CSCS Card, follow the following application process:

  1. You need to have your CITB Number/CITB Testing ID to hand (it can be found at the top of your score report)
