What certifications will I need to successfully apply to a construction trades job?

The most common requirement is for the CSCS card (Construction Skills Certification Scheme). Almost all our site-based vacancies require a valid CSCS card. The card itself prooves that the card holder has the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out. There are several types of CSCS cards and the one that you apply for will depend on the work you’ll be doing and the NVQs or SVQs that you hold already. The CPCS (Construction Plant Competence Scheme) is an example of a card scheme for those involved in plant operations. 

Other certifications include:

  • Gas Safe Register - list of qualified gas engineers (replacing CORGI)
  • IRATA - for the work-at-height sector
