l 97% thought the pre-assessment process was suitable to assess their training needs; l 88% thought training delivery was suitable for their needs; l Over 75% believed that the training content was suitable; l 90% saw the training materials as suitable; and l 85% thought the assessment was suitable.
Graham Wren, CSCS Chief Executive, said: ‘The entry level qualification to obtain a CSCS card is an important move in our strategy to ensure that people have appropriate qualifications, skills and knowledge to carry out their work on construction sites.’
