Every construction worker knows the importance of gaining a CSCS card to enable them to work on site. However it appears some people are being charged excessive fees to obtain the cards by unofficial third party websites
A quick Google search brings up an array of different websites all promising to order your card for you, but how do you know which ones will give you the best value and get your card to you in good time?
A CSCS card should cost you no more than £36. According to the official site for the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) some people are being charged in excess of £60 by websites that are unaffiliated with the CSCS and who are adding admin fees to make a profit for themselves. To make sure you don't pay over the odds the best place to order your card is the official CSCS website.
Managing Director at ANTA Education, Craig Howard says ““This is one of the main reasons that we started offering CSCS card training at ANTA Education. Putting ourselves in our learner’s shoes, when searching for CSCS options online there are hundreds of options and resellers, seemingly selling the same thing at different prices. We offer wrap around support and advice for clarity which helps our learners understand that the costs paid for CSCS cards and their CITB exam is the right cost with no hidden fees”
