    When I did it I had to present a portfolio of my work showing I could carry out the jobs they then came on about 3 of my jobs... even spoke to customers didnt take long but I assume it is a lot quicker these days and it is not worth the paper it is written on....

    most people have fake css cards as they are to expensive and the job does not warrant that amount of outlay.

    no, the sites are to slap happy to check .

    my son tells me that the site they are working on, a gang of eastern are rendering the mono. the agent said non of them have any cards. he asked to see the cards, they answer " when do you want the scaffold down? agent says "next week" he is told it is better to shut your mouth then.

    i guess it is the same. my sons card needs to be renewed but when he saw the cost he stalled .

    i have not got a cscs card i only have my apprentice indentures. they asked to see them in the Netherlands as they have had problems with British labour. that is the only time i have ever been asked to produce them.
