Who is this for?

This route is for people applying for a white Academically Qualified Person (AQP) card from CSCS or LISS. To qualify for this card, your construction qualification(s) need to be comparable to one of these levels:

  • Higher National Certificate
  • Higher National Diploma
  • Bachelor degree
  • Master’s degree
  • Doctoral degree

What we provide

The Statement of Comparability for Construction Skills for Academically Qualified Persons will include the following:

The documents you need to send to us

If you apply online, you can upload scanned files. If you apply by post, send photocopies. Do NOT send original certificates. We need:

How long does it take?

30 working days from the date we receive all your documents and payment. This does not include the postage/delivery time.

As we rely on information from third parties to verify your chosen award, note that we cannot always guarantee that assessments are dispatched within 30 working days.

In a few cases, such as those requiring additional special research into the qualifications, the process may take longer – this is uncommon, but if it applies to your case, we will tell you.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the service is £184.50 + VAT* (£221.40).
*VAT is payable within the EU. If you are applying from an address outside of the EU, you are not required to pay VAT.

How many qualifications can I submit?

This service can compare the level of multiple qualifications.

The service provides a Primary Source Verification report for only ONE qualification.

Please tell us which qualification you want us to verify at the application stage. If you do not tell us, we will verify the latest or highest qualification with a focus on construction.
