NEBOSH accepted by CSCS as ‘proof of competence’ in construction

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) is now accepting two NEBOSH qualifications as part of its passport scheme that allows people to provide "proof of competence" to work on construction sites. CSCS provides a range of cards to cover most occupations and skill levels in the construction industry. According to CSCS, their cards provide people employed on construction sites with a "portable means of identity and proof of competence to carry out their work on site."

The CSCS 'Academically Qualified Person (AQP)' card, or yellow/white card (more information here), is available to "competence assessed" members of CSCS approved professional bodies, including NEBOSH. Both the NEBOSH National Construction Certificate and NEBOSH National Diploma are now recognised by CSCS for AQP card eligibility.
