The online HSA course is designed for individuals working in construction and provides practical advice on keeping yourself and your colleagues safe, the majority of delegates who take this course do so to meet the requirements of the CSCS Labourer card.
The HSA course takes approximately 3 hours to complete followed by an online exam with a cost of £99.00. The HS&E Test is a mandatory requirement for ALL CSCS card applications and can be booked to be taken at a Pearson-VUE test centre at a cost of £21.00.*
*Cost of the test will be increasing to £22 on 1 April 2021 for any new tests booked.
While the HS&E test is a mandatory requirement for all CSCS cards the online HSA course can ONLY be used to apply for the CSCS Labourer card
We have found that when booking the HSA exam following course completion, a small number of delegates have accidentally booked the HS&E test, so please ensure you book correctly following completion of your course.
To apply for your CSCS card you need to have completed and passed both the HSA course (including end of course examination) and the HS&E test.
With eCourses, you can now complete your HSA qualification completely online by simply following these steps.
After navigating to the Pearson VUE website, you will need to log in, or if you don’t already have an account, create one.

Once you’ve passed, Pearson VUE will provide you with a scorecard at the end of the HSA exam which you can use as evidence to support for CSCS labourers card application.
You should take care when booking your exam that you have selected the correct option as rebooking your exam will incur a cost of £21.
