BLACK construction CARD – MANAGER

BLACK construction Card - MANAGER

Managers and technicians can obtain the five-year construction Black Manager card (formerly called the Platinum card). It represents the Construction Skills Certification Scheme’s managerial level, and unlike some other cards, it is renewable. Holders of the Black Manager card may easily prove that they have the necessary skills and expertise to manage a construction site while also protecting the safety of those around them.

Although a construction card is not legally required for construction site employees, having one is becoming more and more important to safeguard your job in the sector. The majority of construction companies, especially the larger ones, require that personnel possess a construction card of some form. Therefore, it is a smart career move to be proactive and earn one as soon as you can, even if you are currently employed in a managerial position and have not held one previously. The advantages of having a construction card are self-evident:

The level of NVQ training and qualifications rises sharply for this card and candidates need to have achieved:

It’s crucial to be informed that construction does not recognise academic credentials relating to construction for the Black Manager card. Only those who have successfully passed the required Construction Management-related NVQ/SVQ Levels 4, 5, 6 or 7 may apply for the Black Manager card. Candidates must apply for the White Academically Qualified Persons (AQP) construction card if they have completed academic requirements relating to construction. Only those with completed HNDs, HNCs, CIOB certifications, NEBOSH diplomas, and specific construction degrees are eligible for the AQP card.

In conclusion, practical skills-based qualifications like NVQs and SVQs are preferred above knowledge-based ones like academic degrees. Because of this, construction gives several cards according on the route that candidates have taken. The White APQ card shows that knowledge has been tested, whereas the Black Manager card shows that practical abilities have been evaluated. Both cards have the same amount of seniority; the list of jobs displayed on the back is what counts. Both cardholders may have “Management” listed on the card’s reverse, depending on the qualifications they both have.
