Alternatively, to get a CSCS Green Card, you can attend our CSCS Course, Test & Card training package. You will finish the course and test in one day. It’s the quickest way to obtain your CSCS labourer’s card online.

Another route to getting your CSCS Green Card is by completing the CITB Health & Safety Awareness. However, this is only one step towards getting your card. You will also need to take the Health, Safety and Environment Touch Screen Test at your nearest Pearson Vue centre
