In order to qualify for the Trainee (Craft and Operative) card you should be operating as a trainee and be registered for an NVQ, SVQ or relevant Construction Award without having reached your level 2 or 3 NVQ or SVQ.
It is mandatory that you pass the Health, Safety and Environment test before applying for your CSCS card.
The red card will only be valid whilst the trainee course has been completed after which, the relevant card suited towards that qualification can be applied for.
