Mock CSCS Test

Completing the CSCS mock exam below is an excellent way of preparing yourself for the real CSCS test, these CSCS mock test questions are formulated much like the actual test where a series of multiple-choice questions and answers are selected at random and you must choose the best possible answer.

To get a CSCS card most people will need to pass the CITB Health Safety and Environment Test; it’s a pretty straightforward test depending on the type of CSCS card you’re applying for.

For example, gaining a green or yellow card requires basic health and safety knowledge whereas anyone applying for a gold or black CSCS card will need a more in-depth knowledge of safety procedures.

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (otherwise known as CSCS) is one of the most widely recognised programs designed to help educate and test workers on the safety risks and dangers that occur in the construction industry.
