Alternative Courses

CSCS also accepts a number of alternative courses.

CSCS are unable to issue Labourer cards against alternative training courses and qualification until we recieve confirmation from the CITB Training Standards team that the course or qualification meet the industry-agreed standard for Labouring occupations.

Important note: Alternatives to the Level 1 Award/SCQF Level 4 Award and SCQF Level 5 may not be lifetime qualifications. This could mean that the learner will be required to complete a refresher course every 3-5 years before they can renew their Labourer card.
