Who is a CPCS course for?

Are you interested in CPCS training? Whether you are looking for yourself or a member of your team, it’s important to work with a trusted provider. Here is everything that you need to know about CPCS courses, so that you can make the right choice.

What is CPCS training?

First of all, what is CPCS training? CPCS stands for Construction Plant Competence Scheme – and it provides skills cards for the plant sector of the construction and associated industries. Since its launch in 2033, over 300,000 cards have been issued across 64 categories. The scheme is constantly being reviewed and updated, considering industry feedback, and other factors such as occupational health issues, technology advances and new plant types.

Our CPCS courses

There are many CPCS categories that you can gain your qualification in, which has made it one of the most popular health and safety courses in the UK. You may specialise in heavy plant equipment, or work with cranes or plan lifting operations. CPCS courses are available in the following areas when you choose SRP Training:

  • CPCS (A73) Traffic Marshal (Banksman) 
  • CPCS (A61) Appointed Persons
  • CPCS (A40a) Slinger/Signaller
  • CPCS (A20) Hoist 

A must-have qualification

The CPCS Certification Card scheme exists to demonstrate the skill and knowledge of plant operators, and it is the most widely recognised standard for plant safety in the UK. You will be able to gain your CPCS card after successful completion of theory and practical tests, so that you can show that you possess a broad range of expertise in the field. For many construction industry professionals, a CPCS card isn’t optional – as it is a mandatory requirement to operate plant on site. All UKCG sites require it, along with a growing number of others.
