Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card is the easy way to prove that you are competent in your occupation and have health and safety awareness.  Most contractors and clients now demand proof of competence, before allowing workers onto their sites, which is provided by a CSCS card, not having a CSCS card may affect your ability to work on certain sites.

On Site Assessment & Training (OSAT)
Since the early 1990’s the Major Contractors Group (now known as the UK Contractors Group) have been asking for their and their supply chain employees for proof of competence before allowing them access to site. This has been, in the majority of cases, individual ownership of a CSCS card.

It was quickly identified that much of the very experienced workforce could be lost to the industry as many of them had picked up their skills over many years, without the need for a qualification!

CITB/City & Guilds, the industries qualifications Awarding Body, responded to this situation by introducing OSAT (On Site Assessment and Training), as a route for these experienced workers to achieve an NVQ. This process involves an NVQ Assessor working closely with the candidate and employer to build a portfolio of evidence which will be generated from the workplace.

It is a speedy, efficient and unobtrusive process without the need of written exams or college attendance.

Who’s the course for?
