What is the experienced Worker Licence?
This card is available to workers with on the job experience (normally at least one year in the last three).
The card is valid for one year and cannot be renewed. It is issued on a temporary basis, while a Construction Related QCF qualification is being achieved. It is expected to be replaced by a skilled five-year card on achievement of a Construction Related NVQ or SVQ Level 2 or higher.
Please note - All applicants must have passed the relevant CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test within the past two years and be registered for the relevant Construction Related NVQ or SVQ.
Once you have registered for a relevant SVQ or NVQ you can apply for the Experienced Worker Card, which will prove that you are taking steps towards gaining a recognised construction qualification.
To qualify for the CSCS Experienced Worker Card you must have proof of your registration on a Construction NVQ or SVQ (level two or higher) and you should have passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test relevant to your trade within the last two years.
