Friday, January 20, 2017 2:17 PM

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) has confirmed plans to stop issuing Construction Related Occupation (CRO) cards, which will come into effect from 31st March 2017.

As a partner of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme, we are working with CSCS to provide alternative solutions for current CRO cardholders.

SKILLcard will contact all CRO cardholders with further information as it becomes available, including guidance around the alternative solutions going forward.
