It covers competency standards in Planning; Estimating; Surveying and Buying.  If you have sufficient experience, but do not have the required NVQ qualification to register for your CSCS card then this service is for you. Our unique approach can help you complete this in as little as eight weeks.

The CSCS card is fast becoming a national safety & skills standard for individuals and companies in the construction industry.

What does the course entail?

  • Proof of your experience, much of it in the form of work related documents and photographs, is collected in a portfolio and submitted via Dropbox, email or in a hard copy file
  • A Visiting Assessor will review your portfolio of evidence with you, and carry out observations of you at work
  • Your knowledge of your work role is captured through either written questions and answers, reflective accounts or professional discussion with your Assessor which is often the preferred route as it can be completed on one day
