SKILLcard has announced that the CRO card for 28 occupations are closing starting on 31 January 2021. This is the sixth wave of CRO closures as part of its plan to deliver the Construction Leadership Council’s (CLC) 2025 vision. All card schemes carrying the CSCS logo including SKILLcard, must only certify those occupations with nationally recognised construction related qualifications.
The project, expected to take a number of years to complete, will manage the phase out of CRO cards and support those affected by identifying paths to an agreed industry qualification for that occupation in order to obtain a skilled worker SKILLcard.
SKILLcard will no longer be accepting new applications for these cards from the 31 January 2021. Renewal applications will continue to be accepted until 30 June 2021 following which they will no longer be accepted. All existing CRO cards are still valid until the expiration date on the card.
Applicants will have three options available for them as alternatives to the CRO card. Applications will be open for red trainee cards, blue experienced worker cards, blue skilled worker cards or advanced craft gold cards.
You can read more about the CRO closure and see the details of the alternative routes on the dedicated CRO Closure page on the SKILLcard website.
