The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) recently called on employers and workers in the construction industry to be vigilant against internet companies offering CSCS Card application and CITB health and safety test booking services. These third party firms charge a hefty fee to apply for your CSCS Card or book your CITB Health Safety and Environment Test for you. However, applying for your card and booking your test can be done over the telephone in minutes. In short, using third party firms is a waste of your time and money.
You can apply for your card over the phone by calling CSCS on 0344 994 4777. Your card costs £30 and will be dispatched within two working days.
You can book your CITB Health Safety and Environment Test by calling CITB/Pearson on 0344 994 4488. The test costs £19.50 if taken at a Pearson Vue Test Centre and should cost no more than £30 if taken at a fully accredited independent test centre.
