What is the Level 1 Award in Health and Safety?
The level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment is essentially a one day Health and Safety course which is completely online. Once you have completed the course you can then go to a test centre near you for the CSCS exam and then apply for your card.
Is it equivalent to the 1 day course?
Yes the Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment – CSCS Online Course is equivalent to the One Day Health and Safety in Construction Site Safety Plus course. It allows you to obtain your Green CSCS card once you have completed a CSCS test at a centre near you
Why do I need this course?
If you have not completed a construction qualification then you need to complete this course before you can get a CSCS card.
How does it work?
Very simple. You pay at the top of the page. Then you will be sent an e-mail later on that day with your log in details and links to either download the app or use a PC. Be sure to watch the help videos before you start using the system.
You will have 2 courses within the app. The first will be the e-learning which you will work through. This will give you the information so that you can complete the portfolio. You will then be able to answer the e-portfolio questions.
Once you have completed the questions your assessor will either pass your course or refer you back to some questions that need attention. You will not be told you have failed and you will not be asked to pay for a re-sit or re-submission.
What do I get out of it?
You get the Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment certificate which is accredited by NOCN. This will allow you to get your Green CSCS Card once you have completed the CSCS test at your local test centre.
Will I get my CSCS Card after I pass this course?
No – you still need to sit the CSCS touch screen test at a local test centre to you. You can either book this through us or book it yourself on the CSCS website. However you can not get your green CSCS card without a construction related qualification at level 1 or above this is why we are offering it.

When will I get my certificate?

Can you book my CSCS Test and apply for my card for me?
