If you’re wondering how to get a CSCS card, you’re in the right place!
CSCS stands for Construction Skills Certification Scheme. The card is something that you get to give proof of your relevant construction skills and qualifications when you go to work at a construction site. CSCS cards were introduced in a bid to improve standards in the UK construction industry.
It’s not a legal requirement, but many larger contractors and major house builders require that subcontractors hold them to be able to work on their sites. Getting one is therefore a good idea to prevent restricting the jobs you can work on.

No, you don’t need a CSCS card to join the Construction Industry Scheme. Whilst closely related, you can be part of one without the other.
