CPCS is a card scheme to prove the skills of plant operators. It is the largest and most highly recognized card scheme for the plant industry. It helps prove workers’ operating skills and their health and safety awareness.
The CPCS scheme provides a single skills card for the plant sector of the construction industry.
Based on a mix of professional competence, experience on site and health and safety awareness – three essential qualities for operating plant safely and effectively. Anyone wanting to operate most categories of plant may be required to have the card to work on site.
APPROVED CPCS TRAINING PROVIDER
As an approved CPCS centre we can offer a wide range of training, a great on centre experience and fully qualified trainers and testers. The CPCS test consists of a professional one-one theory test, with a tester followed by a practical test.
The test will be voice recorded and the CPCS practical test will assess competency in operating machinery. The majority of CPCS testing must be completed at a registered CPCS test centre, unless it is an off-centre category, but we are also able to come to site for certain categories that are off centre.
Our purpose-built centre covers over 5 acres and we are able to process up to 16 tests a day, depending on the category. This means sending work gangs to us in one go is not a problem and if men need to do multiple categories in one day, that is also possible.
**If you are a LEVY payer then we will process all levy claims on your behalf, as well as processing all card applications.
We provide Level 2 Plant NVQs for all of the above, along with Level 4 and Level 5 OSAT NVQs for Lifting Operations.
