CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) is the UK construction industry’s primary skills certification scheme. In order to work on construction sites across the country, tradesmen are required to have a valid CSCS Card. CSCS is also affiliated to various other construction related occupations:
Certified: Tradesmen have the right qualifications, certifications and CSCS card relevant to their trade.
Authenticated: Tradesmen have demonstrated to us that they have the correct qualifications, certifications and CSCS card relevant to their trade, so have earned our seal of approval.
Skilled: Tradesmen have undergone the required training relevant to their trade and have acquired the necessary skillset.
Anyone can claim that they’re a plumber. Not everyone can claim that they have undergone the training to become a plumber. Not only is a qualified tradesman highly skilled, they are keenly aware of the correct health and safety regulations - which means they won’t put your life (or theirs) at risk.
Word of mouth can tell you all about a tradesman’s previous work, but can’t tell you whether a tradesman is qualified. At Rated Traders, for every single tradesman on our platform we will detail their qualifications, certifications and CSCS Card, as well as their previous work and feedback from other jobs.
Our competitors do a great job of helping homeowners connect with tradesmen. What our competitors don’t do is help homeowners connect with qualified tradesmen. At Rated Traders we have made it our goal is to connect homeowners with qualified, skilled tradesmen.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0203 875 9505 and our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
