I have held an ‘Assistant Land Surveyor’ CSCS card for a few years but like many of the CRO cards this category has been deleted!

Whilst I have an honours degree in software engineering and CAA PfCO, the CITB don’t recognise either of these qualifications so I can’t go for any of the skill related cards without taking additional (and irrelevant) qualifications.

What are you guys doing to gain access to UK construction sites?

Which CSCS card do you have?

I originally had ‘Assistant Land Surveyor’ but this is one of the construction related occupations that they have removed.

The Construction Site Operative card is no longer valid. Just like the Assistant Land Surveyor card I held, it’s been discontinued.

The nearest equivalent is the Green Labourer Card but my understanding is that, as we are not labourers, we would be in breach of the regulations and therefore the card would be of no assistance in getting onto a construction site. They would also cancel the card if used outside of its remit.

At the moment I am been told that I either need to take a NCQ level 3 surveyors exam (irrelevant and not going to happen) or apply for a CSCS visitors card.

I thought they had now been replaced by something else? Technically speaking you don’t need one to fly a drone over a site but helps if you need to go on one say to meet someone there like a site manager, as they often have own H&S and site induction procedures.
