What is a virtual card?

A virtual CSCS card is just the same as your physical CSCS card but is stored on your phone rather than in your pocket.

Your virtual CSCS card will appear in the my CSCS app as soon as your application is approved, and payment taken.

The virtual card shows employers your photograph, qualifications, training, occupation and the expiry date of your card.

Site managers can digitally verify the information stored on the virtual card using a smartphone or tablet with the CSCS Smart Check app installed.

CSCS Smart Check allows site managers to instantly verify the cardholder’s training and qualifications and be secure in the knowledge that the cardholder is qualified for the job they do on site.
