CSCS Mock Test

Written by admin. Posted in CSCS Mock Test

In this cscs mock test we’ll be asking a series of basic health and safety questions, these questions will cover some of the most popular topics covered in the real test, just like the real test some questions will require a single answer and some will require multiple answers.

The Construction Skills Certification scheme (otherwise known as the CSCS) is the most widely recognised program designed to help educate and test worker’s knowledge on the safety risks and dangers that occur in the construction industry. The test itself is quite straightforward and requires basic to intermediate health and safety knowledge depending on the type of cscs card you’re applying for.

Passing the CSCS test regardless of which test your taking requires practice, completing the CSCS mock exam below is an excellent way of preparing yourself for the real CSCS test, these mock test questions are formulated much like the actual test where a series of multiple choice questions and answers are selected at random and you must choose the best possible answer or answers.

    Just thinking of going for my operator card so i can get back into construction work.
    After 10+ years away had a go at these questions 9/10 right with no prior study (got No.3 wrong… too used to old school sites and being open to ridicule from the gaffas)
