The Industry Placement card is valid for three years and cannot be renewed.
This temporary card is only applicable to those undergoing a construction-related qualification or training programme which requires the completion of a minimum 30 day work placement, such as T-Levels or Trainee Skills Development Programmes.
To be eligible for this card, applicants must:
- Be aged 16 or above
- Be registered onto a qualification or training programme requiring a minimum of 30 days’ work placement
- Have successfully passed the relevant Health, Safety and Environment Test within the last two years. For CSCS, SKILLcard and JIB-PMES, this will be the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operative test. For ECS, it will be the ECS Health, Safety and Environmental Assessment.
Important note: The following card schemes offer the Industry Placement card.
- Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS)
- Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS)
- Engineering Services SKILLcard

Visit the CSCS Industry Placement card support page for further information on identifying the correct T Level, Traineeship or other programme pathway and which card scheme to contact when applying for a card.
If you are a trainee registered to complete a construction-related vocational or academic qualification* which is acceptable for a skilled CSCS card upon completion, you should apply for the Trainee card instead.
