The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) provides for the training, assessment, certification and registration of non-craft operatives within the construction sector. The Construction Skills Certification Scheme was developed following detailed consultation with the social partners (Construction Industry Federation and ICTU), the Health and Safety Authority and specialist working groups. The consultation focused on identifying the training needs and occupational standards required for a range of occupations in the construction sector.
The aim of the CSCS is to enable participants to apply the skills and knowledge that are associated with their occupations in the construction sector.
Information on CSCS is provided under Schedule 5 of the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013. This schedule provides the list of the occupations which are covered under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme.
Individuals working in construction in any of the occupations listed in Schedule 5 of the Construction Regulations are LEGALLY REQUIRED to be in possession of a current SOLAS CSCS Registration Card.
Applicants must satisfy the candidate profile for the skills category for which they are seeking a SOLAS Registration Card. Further information may be obtained from The National Construction Training Centre.
Operators, who successfully complete a CSCS training and assessment programme, are awarded QQI Certification and are issued with a CSCS Registration Card. Operators may add further categories to their cards by successfully completing additional programmes. For single-skill category registration cards the card is valid for five years from the date the card is issued. For registration cards with two or more skill categories listed, the card is valid for 5 years from the most recent renewal date for all skill categories documented on the card or if a new skill category is being added.
