Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS)

Construction Related Occupation (CRO) Cards

This card was available to people working in construction related occupations not covered by other CSCS cards. CSCS ceased issuing this card 1st April 2017.

Expiring CRO cards will not be renewed.

CRO card withdrawal

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) has withdrawn the Construction Related Occupation (CRO) card.

What does this mean?

  • CSCS stopped issuing CRO cards from 31st March 2017
  • CRO cards issued since 1st October 2015 will expire on 30th September 2017*
  • CRO cardholders must take further steps to replace their CRO cards before they expire.

Code A Weld and TWI Certification Ltd join up welder approval testing and certification to support the industry

The Agreement will enable Code A Weld to undertake assessments and weld testing for welders seeking CSWIP certification, including the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) approval, essential for access to construction sites.

Code A Weld CSWIP Welding Examiners visiting work sites, fabrication shops and training organisations to carry out welder approval testing will be able to offer a  one-stop-shop service giving you a single point of contact for all your welding certification needs, including the Code A Weld rapid turnaround test house service.

Contact us today to discuss the new implications of the changes and the steps you need to take to gain a CSCS card. One of our team will be more than happy to walk you through the requirements and we will work with you to ensure you are fully supported from enquiry through to final certification.

The withdrawal of the CRO card is seen as a practical step towards achieving the Construction Leadership Council's requirement of ensuring nationally recognised qualifications are in place for all construction related occupations
