This one-week course is for people wanting to work on a building site as a labourer or trainee. The CSCS card is required for you to work onsite and this course prepares you so that you can apply for a green or red card. The red card is valid for 3 years and is for trainees studying for a building industry related NVQ. The green card is for labourers working onsite and is valid for 5 years.
You do not need formal qualifications to start this course.
During this course you will study the CITB Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness course. By the end of the course you will understand the need to prevent accidents, have an understanding of health and safety law, identify how your role fits into the control and management of the building site, understand the need for risk assessments and method statements, accident prevention techniques. The course is delivered by the Construction Department, which is based at our brand new campus in Colindale.
Your course work will be assessed interactively throughout the course and there will be a final multiple-choice assessment. You will be given help to prepare for these assessments.
Successful completion of the course earns you a CITB Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness Certificate. Completion of the course and assessment enables you to apply for your CSCS red or green card.
