Description

 

The Touch Screen Test is a route for delegate's to obtain the CSCS labourer card. It's an ideal foundation for those wishing to access construction sites. It's also an important way for construction workers to show employers that they can be safe on the job.

The pass mark for the Operatives test is 90%. To pass, you need to answer at least 45 out of 50 questions correctly.

The official CITB GT100 publication contains all of the content that is covered within the test in the form of questions and answers so that you can fully prepare for your test. It is also available as a digital download. There is a smartphone app which provides test simulations so you can practise answering knowledge questions against the clock and highlight the areas where further preparation is needed. You can find further information on the preparing for the test page.

Our pricing includes a separate admin fee (£20) in addition to the cost of the CSCS test (£22.00)
