All Skill Card applicants will automatically receive (if required) a Virtual Card free of charge. All prices are subject to change

Skill Card types and requirements

The full range of Skill Cards are available as physical AND virtual cards. You can select one or both at the payment stage. If you have already been issued with a physical Skill Card and would also like a virtual one, please call the Skill Card helpline.

Licensed Asbestos Skill Cards

If you are new to the Industry or have less than 3 years’ experience then the red Trained Worker ACAD Skill Card is the one for you.  This lasts for 3 years during which time you must obtain your relevant NVQ otherwise there will be no replacement card available.

If you have more than 3 years’ experience then the red Experienced Worker ACAD Skill Card should be selected.  This requires you are registered on the appropriate NVQ to obtain the card that lasts for 12 months during which you must complete your NVQ.  Failure to do so means there will be no card available after the 12 months.

Once you are qualified with the appropriate NVQ then you can apply for the renewable blue Skilled Worker ACAD Skill Card or the gold Supervisor ACAD Skill Card.  These can be renewed every five years.

Surveyor and Analyst Skill Cards

ACAD, BOHS, FAAM (Faculty of Asbestos Assessment and Management) and NORAC (National Organisation of Asbestos Consultants) have formed a collaboration to deliver a new skills certification card, displaying the CSCS logo, to Asbestos professionals.

If you are new to the Industry without a qualification then the red Trainee Worker ACAD Skill Card is the one for you.  This lasts for 12 months during which time you must obtain your relevant qualification otherwise there will be no replacement card available.

Once you are qualified with the appropriate qualification then you can apply for the renewable blue Skilled Worker ACAD Skill Card or the gold Supervisor ACAD Skill Card.  These can be renewed every five years.
