The Route for Practicing Professionals to Gain Their CSCS Black Card
Unfortunately the CSCS Profiled Route, as a route to gaining a CSCS Manager Card without qualification, is as of 31st March 2016, no longer available from the CSCS. However, there is an alternative route and it’s called the NVQ Assessment Route. It’s designed for experienced Construction Site Managers and Project Manager etc., and is delivered online at your own pace. You dont need time off work to do this. This is now the only viable alternative assessment type route to gaining a CSCS Black Manager Card.
These NVQ routes award credits to completed assessed units such as health and safety, managing plant, managing resources, managing sustainability and environmental aspects to construction on site. If this sounds complicated, please be assured it isn’t.
The process involves completing a brief knowledge questionnaire and supplying evidence to support your answers. All candidates will be assigned their own assessor who is there to provide the support and guidance necessary for candidates to meet the qualification standards. In other words, the assessor is there to help you. All that is asked of candidates is that they have at least three years practicing experience for the qualification they are applying for and that they give their qualification and studies and themselves the time their studies deserve.
Most candidates will complete their Level 6 NVQ / QCF in three months or less. At RivaSure we supply Management NVQ’s (QCF’s) and an Access to Management GAP course for candidates preparing for their NVQ’s
