Online Construction Training


We’re open for business across all areas of our business, including Skills and Training.  In line with Government advice, we have paused all face-to-face contact entirely, instead delivering a high quality nationwide service using alternative channels.  If you would like to discuss your learning needs – as an individual, an employer or as another support organisation, please do not hesitate to direct your enquiries to who will be able to assist.

Our Skills and Training team are working hard to bring as many of our courses ‘online’ as we can, and are working closely with all relevant accredited bodies to provide quality, CV-enhancing training courses and qualifications.

Why Wise Group?

The Wise Group is a leading construction training provider, delivering skills development training courses to people across Scotland.  Our Skills team can help you gain the key qualifications you need to get started in a career in construction, by completing our online training course.  No matter where you are in Scotland – we can help.

Our two day Online Construction (CSCS Card) course is delivered online using Microsoft Teams by our qualified Health & Safety professionals.  We will give instruction on relevant Health and Safety matters and when you are ready, we will arrange your CSCS Health & Safety and Environmental touch screen test (at your local CITB accredited Test Centre).  Finally, we will apply for the full CSCS card on your behalf, which is valid for five years.

Based on the candidate providing the relevant information/qualifications, we can provide a route to the following cards:

  • Blue Card – Skilled Worker
  • Gold Card – Supervisory/Advanced Craft
  • Green Card – Labouring

For those candidates requiring a Green Card, you will also be put through the Elementary Health and Safety course accredited through REHIS, as part of the training and will have to complete a multiple choice examination online at the end of the course.

"The quality of the training was good, and will allow me to work on construction sites as well as being the 1st step in a career change to Health & Safety. It was especially good to get the use of a laptop to access the training."
"The overall quality of the training was excellent and will allow me to get back to work on construction sites as my CSCS card has expired. The length of the course was very good, and the breaks in between the sessions really helped. The support provided by Brian before and during the training was very good too."
