CSCS PQP Card
Having a CSCS card brings benefits to professionals such as designers, consultants, architects, engineers, surveyors and other competency assessed members of professional bodies that meet CSCS criteria. It shows clients and partners that you are committed to leadership in site-based health and safety.
The Professionally Qualified Persons (PQP) card is the appropriate CSCS Card for competency assessed members of professional bodies, such as the IDE, CIOB and IStructE
(The non-residency on site requirement has now been removed)
Full Members and Fellows of the IDE, whose IDE-CPD is fully up to date, will now have their professional competence as demolition engineers accredited alongside other professional bodies.
The applicant must have acquired 6 IDE-CPD hours annually in the last three years to be eligible to apply. This is attested by the National Secretary from records held by the Institute.
To apply for the card:
- Visit the CSCS website and apply on-line for the Professionally Qualified Persons card. Please note there is no longer an application form to download.
- To be able to complete the on-line application you will need to pass the Managerial and Professional Health & Safety Test, provide evidence that you are currently a Full Member of the IDE and have acquired at least 6 IDE CPD hours annually over the last 3 years.
- Make a payment of £36.00 as part of your on-line application.
- You should receive your new card in approximately 7 days – once received send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can allocate your CPD to your IDE records.
It is important for the card-holder to comply with the IDE’s Continuing Professional Development requirements. When the application for the card to be renewed is made after five years it will be necessary for the holder to have acquired a total of 15 IDE-CPD hours.
