CSCS Cards & Testing

CITP Ltd is an accredited CITB Health, Safety and Environment 'Touch-Screen-Test' centre. If you wish to apply for, or renew a CSCS card, booking and passing the HS&E test is the first step you will need to take.

The ultimate aim of this test is to examine candidates' knowledge of a broad range of key aspects of health and safety, which will in turn improve safety and general productivity on construction sites in the UK. To obtain a trade-specific card, be it a Green Labourer, Blue Skilled Worker, Gold Supervisor or Black Manager card, candidates must also demonstrate their occupational competence by completing the relevant CSCS NVQs.

This official certification scheme applies to all Site Operatives, Supervisors and Managers as well as plant operatives. Whatever professional position you or your employees are in, the CSCS card is essential.

Health and Safety is key to any organisation and it is imperative that everyone understands the health and safety procedures during specific events. Our role is to provide just that. We ensure all participants in our construction training courses get the necessary information so they are safe at the workplace. This isn't only to keep the participants safe; it is also able to ensure that the workplace is safe for others.

To find our more about how to work towards a CSCS card, then call us today on 01189 700200, or get in touch with us through our contact page. We provide our comprehensive CSCS testing for candidates and individuals from across Berkshire and Hampshire, including Southampton, Andover, Windsor, Maidenhead, Winchester, Padworth, Eastleigh, Newbury, Portsmouth, Wokingham, Hungerford, Reading, and Basingstoke
