By completing the one-day course, you will gain a basic knowledge of health and safety on-site, especially beneficial for those new to the industry.

The course will provides you with the knowledge and tools of how to work safely on construction sites. It is endorsed by BUILD UK and the certificate for this course is valid for 5 years.

Step 2: Health, Safety and Environment Test

After completing the course, you will then need to book a Health, Safety & Environment Touchscreen Test at your nearest Pearson Vue Centre. If you need help finding the one closest to you, ask us.

If you pass both the course and touchscreen test, you will then be able to apply for your CSCS labourer card once 3B Training has processed your course return. To do this, you can apply for the green CSCS card online via the CSCS website. The card is valid for five years.

The CITB use the test to examine the delegate across a range of topics. The test is usually available as a computer-based touch screen test, but alternative options are available for certain exemptions.

You will need to complete the test within the last two years to apply for your CSCS card online.
