How do I get a CSCS Card to work in Bude?



To work as a Labourer on most sites in the construction industry you will need a valid CSCS card (this is no different in Bude), this proves you have the relevant knowledge and training to perform your job safely for yourself and others.

  • IOSH Working safely course

After obtaining the above, you will also need to pass the CITB Operatives Health, Safety and Environment test within two years before applying to get your CSCS Card from the CSCS website.


The above courses would need to be refreshed every 5 years, however there are some lifetime qualifications that will not need refreshing. Such as the QCF Level 1, SCQF Level 4 and BTEC Level 1, you can check the latest requirements on the CSCS website, which also tell you which specific Health, Safety and Environment test you will need to take.
