Why get a BLACK CSCS Card ? Is it worth it?

Because this is currently the MOST IMPORTANT question for every Construction Site Manger. Is it worth my time, effort and my hard-earned cash? Lets look at the CSCS Site Manager’s Black Card.

Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) is the leading skills certifications scheme in the UK Construction industry.  It is not a legislative requirement; besides that, most principal contractors and major house builders require construction works on their sites to hold a valid CSCS card.

What are the benefits?

  • You will be a more valuable asset to your company or client
  • Could qualify you for a pay rise
  • Demonstrates a willingness for continuous professional development
  • Open up many more job opportunities
  • You will be deemed competent under CDM regs as a manager
  • Completion of the NVQ is a pathway to CIOB membership

Getting your Black Card!

Getting the black cscs card, you need to have a Level 6 or 7 NVQ in your relevant Construction site occupation.

For those who are experienced and knowledgeable site managers – get your qualification through our fast track route,  achievable within 6 – 8 weeks.

Is it worth the expense ?

CSCS have announced plans to make the construction industry a qualification work force. With the construction industry moving towards a qualified work force, site managers need to have higher levels of qualifications, work experience alone is not enough, as a result site managers need a Black CSCS card, to stay relevant in the game.

Site Managers can get their Black CSCS card, by contacting us for NVQ level 6 and 7 on 0845 900 7859!
