CSCS Course, Test and Card course content

The content covered in this course will highlight the importance of working safely on a construction site and how to protect yourself and others around you.

GQA Level 1 Award in Construction Health & Safety has five key sections; each section makes up part of a workbook which you must complete throughout the course as part of your assessment.

The sections that the Level 1 CSCS training course will cover are:

Section 1: Introduction to construction health and safety

Section 2: Safe manual handing in a construction environment

Section 3: Working safely at height in a construction workplace

Section 4: Risks to health in a construction environment

Section 5: Working around plant and equipment safely


Once you have completed your workbook, your tutor will assess it. Then, you will then need to take the CSCS health and safety test. The CSCS exam contains a series of multiple-choice questions; you have up to one hour to complete it.

How long is the CSCS Course, Test and Card?

We deliver the package over one day of training. The course’s short duration allows you to spend minimal time away from work and get qualified quickly.

The main benefit of this package is that you can complete both the course and test in one day, unlike other similar courses. In addition, by attending all in one day, you save both your and your employers time booking extra dates to complete the test and spending time away from work.

Public Classroom Courses

The classroom-based Level 1 CSCS Award in Construction Health & Safety course is available nationwide with 3B Training. An approved tutor delivers the course in a traditional class environment with a group of other delegates.

To book a public course, select the date you’d like to attend on this page and book online. Then, if you’d prefer, you can give us a call or fill in the enquiry form on this page to ask further questions.

Remote Learning

The CSCS Course and Test is also available online.  The course is delivered in a virtual classroom by a tutor using Zoom. This format is a preferred option for those who’d like not to travel to a venue to save time and money. When you book this course, you will receive a link that will allow you to log into the course on the day. The course content is the same as the classroom format, only delivered electronically.

On the morning of the course, we will also send you the link to the secure assessment system. the system is where you will complete your workbook and CSCS test.

Like the classroom format, we have multiple public remote learning dates where it’s possible to book one or multiple spaces. In addition, you can book the remote CSCS course online or over the phone.

In-house Courses

We can also arrange for the GQA Level 1 CSCS course and test to be delivered exclusively for your company. Additionally, we can provide in-house courses online or in the classroom at a 3B venue or one of your choosing. To inquire about in-house training, complete the form on this page, and one of the team members will be in touch with a quote. Courses are priced on a case by case basis depending on the location, delivery method and number of delegates.

Further development

You will receive your GQA Level 1 qualification certificate and CSCS card as soon as possible after the course finishes but it will typically take 1-2 weeks.

Your Level 1 Award certificate does not expire, and therefore you do not need to renew it. However, your GQA CSCS card is valid for five years before it expires; you will need to complete the test again to restore it.

You will use the CSCS Green Labourer card as proof that you have passed the relevant training to show that you can demonstrate health and safety competence. In addition, most construction sites will require this CSCS card to gain entry.

You can then start to look at gaining your skills in a specific trade; completing a Trades NVQ alongside this would generally be the next step. You may also want to look at a site supervision role by completing the SSSTS.

If you are looking to add more qualifications to your CV to make yourself more employable, most sites look below minimum requirements.

Yes, companies who are CITB registered can claim £30 for each delegate who completes this course. For the grant to be claimed, you must include the company name and CITB levy number on the delegates information form, which is completed before or on the first day of the course.
