Well, had my CSCS exam on Saturday. Passed. Think it's pretty scandalous that you have to pay £42.50 for this 'exam' but...

Anyway, bought another CD (Yep cirrus, from ebay, for a fiver. Well £4!) :) and thought it was very useful.

Contains all the questions and answers that you'll be asked on the CSCS exam.
Generates random exams to practice with.
Provides a 'check and review' to see which questions you got wrong (if any).
Test yourself on seperate subjects if you're weak in a particular area (eg: handheld tools)

Basically, go on ebay and type in 'CSCS'.
Anyone going in for this exam, it's not difficult, really. However, £4 well spent on this CD in my opinion (£2CD £2p+p) if you feel you want to revise beforehand(which you should)

Well I'm just a lowly labourer/mate so I went for the CSCS Operatives Card.
Someone did suggest another card to me. It's on this forum somewhere. I'll have a look for it...

Go on the website, CITB-ConstructionSkills or something, call the number and explain your situation and they'll tell you which one you need.

Alternatively, wait for someone more informedthan I to come on here and tell you :)

CSCS card is awarded by the ECS and is needed to work on site. Some companies have an umbrella qualification allowing their staff to work on site without getting individual CSCS cards.

How long does it take for the card to be sent out?

I passed my CSCS about 6 weeks ago, sent off the certificate, still no sign?

You should have received it within a week.
Try calling them again. Quoting your reference number from the temporary card they gave you (the A4 sheet given to you after you passed)

Alright Bane,

Which card level did you go for? - I'm trying figure out which level people mean when they say 'cscs' card required - I looked on the cscs website and found this list of levels:

http://www.cscs.uk.com/RunScript.asp?page=133&p=ASP\Pg133.asp#MoreGreen

From what i can see you need a trainee or green card level to get on site: - but it seems difficult if you can't get that without being employed in the first place? [as you need a job to get on the NVQ or get accredited at work] - according to the appendix in the cscs scheme p.23 here:

http://www.cscs.uk.com/upload_folder/downloadmaterials/scheme-booklet-may-07.pdf


Any info would be good.

ta.
