Across all construction and building sites, site supervisors are arguably the key component to a successful project. With their role of ensuring site safety, and effectively overseeing the work of others, supervisors must have undertaken the relevant qualifications to be able to hold this position. If you’re looking to prove your competency and become a site supervisor, having possession of a CSCS Gold Supervisor Card is imperative. To help prospective supervisors to gain this, Acadame provides our supervisory NVQs, as well as the CITB Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (or SSSTS).
CSCS Gold Card Requirements
For those working with supervisory responsibilities, getting a supervisor qualification is the next step to gaining your CSCS Gold Card. Our Supervision & Management NVQs are designed to allow construction professionals to prove their knowledge and skills within their specific job role, and demonstrate their management competency. Site supervisors must have completed either our Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Occupational Work Supervision, or Level 4 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Supervision to be able to look at getting their CSCS Gold Card.
Additionally, applicants must have completed the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test within the past 2 years. The aim of the test is to examine supervisors’ knowledge across numerous topics in order to maintain construction site safety, and is completed in the format of short multiple choice questions.
CITB Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS)
Although not mandatory for a Gold CSCS card, many employers insist their supervisors complete a CITB Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme to complement their learning. Our CITB SSSTS course in Stoke-On-Trent is an ideal way to improve your skills in terms of monitoring, organising, and administering groups of staff within the construction and civil engineering industries.
