FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I renew my grade card?

Your SNIJIB CSCS grade card expires when your CSCS date does. In order to renew your card, you must therefore pass a new CSCS health and safety test.

This will be a plumbing/non-plumbing health and safety test, depending on your grade with the SNIJIB.

 

Where can I do a health and safety test?

Where can I sit my CSCS health and safety test?

You can do your test at our office in Edinburgh. Give us a call to order your test, and we’ll be back in touch when it arrives, to book you in.

The test can take 2-3 weeks to arrive, however if you do the test with us, you only have to make payment for the SNIJIB CSCS grade card.

Please note: all tests conducted at our office can only be scheduled on a Friday afternoon at 2:20pm.

 

If your employer has a registered Invigilator with the company, we can send the test out to your site.

 

Alternatively, you can get in touch with Pearson Vue who have test centres around the UK, to arrange a plumbing/ non plumbing test.

Once you have passed the test, we would require a copy of the score report and payment for your SNIJIB CSCS card.

What constitutes as a Plumbing test?

A "Plumbing" health and safety test from a test centre can include "Plumbing and Heating", "Plumbing and Oil", "Plumbing and Gas" etc.

As long as it has "Plumbing" in the title, we can accept it as a Plumbing health and safety test.

If you are sitting your test with Pearson Vue, you can ask for a "Specialist JIB Plumbing Test".

 

Am I graded with the SNIJIB?

We may still have some outstanding information regarding your apprenticeship details or qualification, which means you might not have been graded with the SNIJIB.

Get in touch with us to enquire whether or not we have your correct details.

 

Why haven’t I been upgraded?

Being upgraded with the SNIJIB doesn’t occur automatically; it should be applied for – either by the individual or the employer.

There are some conditions to being upgraded, so please see our Registration and Grading section for details on whether or not you are eligible.
