We now offer the Lantra Level 1 Award in health & safety in a construction environment. This qualification will allow you to gain the green card but you must also have taken and passed the Health & Safety test (touch screen multi-choice) to be able to apply for the green card.

This qualification is suitable for learners wishing to develop knowledge and understanding in health and safety and is ideally suited to operators who wish to achieve Fencing Industry Skills Scheme (FISS)/Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) green card status within a construction/fencing environment.
