After the recent exposure of fraudlent activity, CITB has taken steps to suspend the offending companies and will accelerate plans to introduce new anti-fraud measures. All CSCS cards issued as a result of tests completed at the Found centres will be withdrawn and all cardholders will be required to retake the test.
In relation to the training providers identified in the programme (WEP and Training 4 Jobs), both CITB and the British Safety Council have withdrawn accreditation to deliver qualifications together with the Health, Safety and Environmental test with immediate effect.
This is a high concern for project and site managers as they highly rely on CSCS Cards as a genuine form of confirming a qualification. No one wants unqualified operatives on site so it is vital that this is uncovered and action is taken immediatly.
