With the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) officially withdrawing the Construction Related Occupations (CRO) Cards, it has never been a better time to register for your construction National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) and become a fully qualified worker for the UK Construction Industry.

The removal of the CRO card affects over 230,000 CRO card holders. In many cases, CRO card holders will be required to register for existing or newly developed qualifications. In others, card holders will be asked to move to one of CSCS’s Partner Card Schemes that are more appropriate for their occupation. For some, where their occupation is not construction related or no suitable qualifications exist, a CSCS card will no longer be issued.

What are the benefits of achieving a Construction NVQ?

The main benefits of becoming a qualified worker are the extended employability opportunities and the increase of your earning potential. Becoming qualified at Level 2 NVQ provides you access to a Blue Skilled Workers CSCS Card valid for 5 years as well.
