CSR Introduces New Experienced Worker and Experienced Supervisor Cards

The Construction Skills Register (CSR) is introducing two new cards, an Experienced Worker Card and an Experienced Supervisor Card.

These cards are for new candidates that have experience but do not currently hold a qualification. Both cards will be available from 1 September 2019 to coincide with the removal of occupational assessments.

Experienced Worker Card

To be eligible for an Experienced Worker Card, candidates must:

  • Complete the CSR one day Health and Safety Training,
  • Provide proof of registration on an NVQ Level 2 qualification or higher, and
  • Have an employer declaration signed confirming their experience

The Experienced Worker card will be valid for four years from the date the candidate completes the CSR one day Health & Safety training. It cannot be renewed, and cardholders are expected to upgrade on or before expiry to a card based on the qualification they have achieved.

Experienced Supervisor Card

An Experienced Supervisor card will be introduced for new candidates who are experienced supervisors but do not hold a supervisor qualification.

  • Complete the CSR 4 day Site Safety for Supervisors course
