    Ive done one as a professionally qualified person. They're not hard thought theres the odd slightly difficult question about fire extinguishers or handrails

    Probably been to about 40 sites and been asked for it maybe twice.

    There's an app and test questions which are good.

    That idea would have merit except for the fact you can take the test with a variety of foreign language voiceovers

    haha! Is that so?! I am going to let them know that next time they start ranting. That gives me a lot of satisfaction that. :D

    I think the management level test may be restricted, but the normal test can be done in various languages, even in sign language AFAIK.

    i have often wondered if i have to obtain a cscs card if i wanted to move to construction. i have an nvq in mobile plant from the MPQC for quarry operations. probability means nothing on a building site.

    for site operatives it is usually mandatory. It's occasional visitors (not actually doing any direct construction) where they are more relaxed. Often that's because they will be escorted.
