The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) has launched a recently improved employer application process that is much easier and online.
Nearly everyone in construction are familiar with CSCS cards. It’s a card that gives proof that individuals working on construction sites have appropriate training and the correct qualifications for the job. CSCS provides an application service that is used by many employers in the industry when applying for two or more cards to apply for cards on behalf of their workforce.
Recently, the CSCS team have been working with the industry to improve this old paper based service. Angeleen Hill, Scheme Manager at CSCS said: “Online employer applications are an exciting development for CSCS. We are pleased to announce that from Wednesday 28th November our new employer application process will be up and running.”
CSCS want employers to embrace the new online process as applications made by post will no longer be accepted.
CSCS are also keen to point out that the payment method for employer applications will still be the same. Employers who hold an account with CITB will continue to pay in the normal way and those without a CITB account must still provide contact details for payment to be arranged over the phone via a debit or credit card
Angeleen Hill continued: “Moving employer applications online removes much of the complexity surrounding the old paper-based system. Overall it will simplify and speed up the whole card application process for employers.”
