Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS)
The CPCS training scheme aims to provide proof of the skills and abilities of plant operators. It is based on a mix of professional competence, experience on site and health and safety awareness - three essential qualities for operating plant machinery safely and effectively. Being more effective in the workplace means that all construction jobs are completed quicker and to a better standard. Many companies have taken the opportunity to give their staff construction training and they have benefited from it.
As an accredited CPCS testing centre we offer a wide range of construction plant courses, a great on centre experience and fully qualified trainers and testers. We provide the best service in getting you the training you need which can include a wide variety from 1 day to 10 day CPCS training courses. Our highly experienced trainers provide expert advice and guidance to ensure all participants of our CPCS training courses leave with everything they need to be safe and efficient at the work place.
The CPCS testing consists of a professional one-to-one theoretical exam, followed by a practical examination. The theory exam will be recorded by one of our testers and the CPCS practical test could also be video recorded, if required. These tests can be randomly monitored to ensure quality and standards remain to those expected. Both parts will assess competency in operating plant machinery.
The majority of CPCS testing must be completed at one of our registered CPCS test centres, unless it is an off centre category (see training guidance for on/off centre categories), but we are also able to come to site for certain categories that are off centre. Our purpose built centres in Reading, Berkshire and Basingstoke, Hampshire cover over 5 acres, where we are able to process up to 24 tests per day, depending on the course category. This means sending work gangs to us in one go is not a problem and if operatives need to do multiple categories in one day, that is also possible.
If you're based anywhere in Berkshire or Hampshire, including Wokingham, Reading, Maidenhead, Newbury, Winchester, Slough, Padworth, Portsmouth, Eastleigh, Windsor, Andover, and Southampton, call us today on 01189 700200 to discuss which CPCS card training requirements you have.
