Materials and other information

The course is delivered over 3 days – 9:30am – 4pm on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, unless informed otherwise. We run the courses on a weekly basis.

All course materials are on our Moodle site, which you will be given access to. Whilst you are learning, you will be answering questions based on topics relating to the Construction Industry.  All responses are multiple choice and you are provided with a score and feedback so that you are able to learn from and develop your choices, if necessary.



Once you have gained your CSCS labouring card, you can begin to work within the Construction Industry. If you are interested in a particular trade then you could consider gaining an NVQ Level 2 qualification.
