Why should I register for a SKILLcard?

Many construction and site managers request that their workers hold a SKILLcard before coming on site.

Engineering Services SKILLcard aims to provide you with the following benefits:

  • Using smartcards can help improve health and safety onsite by ensuring workers have the right qualifications for the job they do, and by eliminating the possibility of fake cards being used to access sites
  • Checking you have the right qualifications for the work you do is quicker, easier and less time-consuming using smartcards
  • If you are self-employed, you can use smartcards to keep your training records and certifications up to date.'.

Who can apply for a SKILLcard?

Anybody working in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, including ductwork and other specialisms associated with the building engineering services industry - such as service and facilities, domestic heating and plumbing, and refrigeration and air conditioning. The scope of SKILLcard also covers those with supervisory and managerial responsibilities in the building engineering services industry.

You do not have to be employed in order to register. You could be self-employed, an agency worker or unemployed.

Registration of the scheme is confirmed through the issue of an Engineering Services SKILLcard. Engineering Services SKILLcard is affiliated to the pan-industry Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). The terms of affiliation ensure that Engineering Services SKILLcard complies with the requirements of CSCS. There is no need, therefore, for separate registration with CSCS.
