The Construction Skills Register (CSR) is a register of construction workers living in Northern Ireland who have completed the industry approved CSR health and safety training course. The aims of the registration scheme are to raise standards of health and safety and provide recognition of skills, experience and qualifications attained.
To become registered, workers must complete a minimum of the one day health and safety training course, delivered by BSD Training Ltd.
The CSR card is accepted outside of Northern Ireland through a mutual recognition agreement between CSR and the Solas Safe Pass Safety Awareness Training Programme in the Republic of Ireland, and through an affiliation with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) in Britain. Please click here for more information about the CSR scheme and the agreements it has with similar schemes in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland to ensure that CSR cards are accepted in these jurisdictions.
We can train and assess delegates from throughout Northern Ireland to ensure they gain the appropriate machine operator category they need to work on the majority of sites in Northern Ireland.
There are 2 types of CSR Plant operative card that you can obtain;
Red Card - This is a 2 year trained operator card that is not renewable, however this card can be upgraded to the blue competent operator card
Blue Card - This is for operators that have previous experience and hold NVQ's in their field.
If you do not currently have an NVQ in the relevant plant category we can complete this with you if necessary.
