Card Fraud at Test Centres/Fraudulent CSCS Cards
Interlay are aware of the recent undercover investigation undertaken by the BBC Newsnight program which has identified fraudulent behaviour taking place at three separate test CSCS card training centres. Assessors have been seen to be aiding candidates to pass certain tests, in particular the Health and Safety and Environment testing. In reaction to this the CITB have suspended at least one of the test centres featured in their programme and continue to investigate this vigorously. While fraudulent cards have been a long running issue the CITB have in passed years introduced smarter technology to combat this and again will do all they can to ensure that fraudulent cards are not in circulation.
If you have any concerns about the tests that your workers have taken, please don’t hesitate to contact CSCS direct on 0344 994 4777. They can help your workers to organise retaking their test, if they received their certificate from a test centre under investigation, suspension or which has been closed.
