The accredited certificate obtained will serve towards your labourer’s card (CSCS green card) application.
Booking must be made and paid for in advance: Once payment is made and your place on the Health and Safety Course is confirmed you will receive your course book and materials together with a set of mock exam questions via email. We would encourage all candidates to read their materials prior to attending the course as this would help understand what to expect on the course day and could contribute towards successful results of the exam. This is a classroom based course, with an exam at the end of the course day.
A valid photo ID will be required on the day of the course together with the application course form – download here.
The 1 hour Health and Safety course exam will take place at the end of the course day once all course subjects have been covered by the tutor. The exam has 40 multiple choice questions where 32 correct answered will be needed for a pass and certification. This certificate does not expire.
The results will be communicated within 7-10 working days from the date of the exam, the certificate for the successful candidates will be scanned and emailed to the email address used to sign up on the course – please ensure you are able to access this email.
