CSCS Health & Safety Tests

Your 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.

Please note that test papers can only be issued by the SNIJIB in English.
