    The Experienced Worker Card is only valid for one year and in non-renewable without an NVQ.
    Which CSCS card / NVQ do I need?

    * For a red "trainee" CSCS card you need to complete the "touch screen Health & Safety test" and register for an NVQ.
    * For a blue "skilled worker" CSCS card you need to complete an NVQ at level 2.
    * For a gold "skilled worker" CSCS card you will not need to complete an NVQ at level 3.

    If getting started on the road to CSCS seems complicated or just too much hassle, we can help by managing the whole process from health and safety training, booking the touch screen test and registering candidates with CAA. Then, following an informal initial interview, one of our qualified assessors will decide how best to proceed with the candidates assessment, based upon their existing skills.

    This NVQ is broken down into 3 levels each representing a level of skill and competence. All levels require a health and safety test pass and are then split into mandatory and optional units. Fitters can specialise in either textile flooring (carpets), impervious flooring (vinyl, safety floor and design flooring), or in wood and laminate installation. Some fitters will achieve qualification in two or even all three.

    * Level 1
    Introductory, for those new to or currently training in flooring. It covers routine tasks or basic knowledge and understanding whilst working safely at all times.
    * Level 2
    For those with good knowledge and ability in flooring. These awards acknowledge individual responsibility and an all round competence.
    * Level 3
    Recognises the application of knowledge and ability in a broad range of flooring activities including complex and non-routine installations. This level involves some supervisory responsibilities.

    This is something im wanting to do. As i want to start on site work again.
    Ive been a floor layer for 27 years. Doing pretty much everything, but haven't got any actual qualifications.
    I passed my asbestosis course. And cscs a couple of years ago. But now im wanting a skilled cscs card. And some NVQ'S. As i think the next year (at least) Is going to be tough in the domestic side.
    Thanks. Kelvin

    Depending on a few variables, you can find guys who will assess you on site.
    No one ever fails, its all a con anyway, just pay your money, and pick your card up.
