The Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) provides skills cards for the plant sector of the Construction Industry. CPCS is the most widely recognised card scheme for plant operators and users within the UK Construction Industry.
We offer a wide range of courses that can be delivered on our site, based in the North West, or depending on the category we may be able to deliver training/testing on your site if it meets all of the necessary requirements.
We deliver plant machinery training and testing for everyone, from private individuals up to large organisations. We can deliver full novice courses for beginners or if candidates are experienced we can deliver technical theory and practical tests on a test only basis.
Our experienced trainers will provide the knowledge, training and guidance to give candidates the best chance of being successful in the CPCS Technical Test.
The scheme requires candidates to have passed a Health Safety & Environment test before attempting a CPCS Technical Test.
On successful completion of the CPCS technical theory and practical tests the candidate will receive a red trained operator card that is valid for two years. Within the two year lifespan of the card the candidate needs to achieve an NVQ to upgrade to a blue competent operator card, this card is then valid for 5 years.
