All applications are made via CSCS Online. Employers, Training Providers and Third Parties must ensure they apply for cards using the correct account type.

Before starting an individual application:

If you don’t hold the correct card it may result in you being refused entry to a construction site. To start the application process you should have the relevant training and experience within construction for the job role you are applying for.
  • Have a scanned copy of your qualification certificate, or proof of registration to complete a qualification, or proof of professional body¬†membership.
  • Pass the appropriate level of the CITB Health, safety and environment test (CITB HS&E) within the last two years. Have the test ID number ready, this can be found at the top of the pass certificate.
