How do I apply for my green cscs card?

Delegates can apply online for their CSCS card through the CSCS website. Click here to head to the CSCS website. Applying via the website is the quickest route.

To apply for your CSCS Green Card delegates will need both of the following:

CITB Site Safety Health and Safety Awareness certificate (as of December 2020 these are now digital)

CITB Health, Safety and Environment test score report print out

Our advice is for delegates to book their tests and course with enough lead time to obtain their card for site purposes.

To make this process as easy as possible delegates must give the same information in each stage (i.e. using their full name rather than nick names, same address) and must have the following:

A scanned copy of your qualification or digital PDF certificate (CITB Site Safety Health and Safety Awareness).

A scanned copy of your pass certificate for the appropriate level of CITB Health, safety and environment (HSE) test, and dated to within the last 2 years.

A credit or debit card to pay the £36 application fee to CSCS when making the application.

You can view a short video which gives a step by step guide to how to acheive your Green Labourers card by clicking here or you can follow our guide to the steps to take to get a Green Labourer Card when taking the CITB Health & Safety Awareness course:

STEP 1 – Book onto your CITB Operative Health, Safety & Environment test.  We do not run these tests however a company called Pearson Vue run these tests daily and are subcontracted by the CITB to deliver the tests.

The cost is £21 per person. You will need to go the Pearson Vue Test Center (phone 0344 994 4488 or go to their website to book)

STEP 2 – Book onto a CITB Health & Safety Awareness course – we run this course and this can be booked by clicking here

STEP 3 – Apply for your Green Labourer Card – apply online at the CSCS website click here.  The cost is £36

  • It doesn’t matter what order you take step 1 and step 2 in but most people take their touch screen test first.
  • Your CITB Health & Safety Awareness certificate will be sent via email 7-10 working days after course completion. Please note delegates will not receive a certificate immediately after the course as all certification is issued by CITB.
