The Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) is making changes as to how to obtain a CSCS Green Card (Labourer Card).
These new requirements being introduced from July 2014, state that along with the CITB Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) Test, a qualification (or alternative) must be achieved in order to apply for the Green Card.

The changes will take effect from the 1st July 2014
