CPCS Blue Card

CPCS Blue Card                    


Thank you for choosing CITP Ltd to enquire about your NVQ. The below information endeavours to explain the NVQ service that we provide. It can seem like quite a complex process; however it really is straight forward.


Health and Safety

As you would expect Health and Safety is taken very seriously at CITP Ltd and it is a strong element of all of our courses. Candidates will need to have passed the CITB Touchscreen Health and Safety Test before accessing any of our courses.

Where our assessors come out to visit you on your site please arrange a Health and Safety briefing. If you have any concerns or questions about Health and Safety, please contact 01189 700200.


Blue Competence Card and the NVQ

It is best for candidates to register for an NVQ 12 – 18 months after completing the red cards tests. They can then begin collecting evidence for the NVQ straight away so there is no last minute rush.


Renewing your Blue Competence Card

After 5 years your blue card will expire and you will need to take the blue card renewal test or renew via one of the alternative routes. Please ask for more information.



Funding may be available to candidates who do not have an NVQ Level 2 or higher qualification already. CITP Ltd can arrange all the paperwork for you so that there is no cost to you for the qualification.


NVQ Route

CITP Ltd manages the OSAT NVQ process so it is as straight forward as possible. Most NVQs for Red Cardholders are completed as per the steps below.

  • Induction and Skillmatch
  • Assessors visits candidate on site (additional training if required)
  • Assessor visits candidate on site

Assessor visits are to observe the candidate doing their job and are designed to cause as little disruption to your work as possible.


CITB Grant payment

For CITB levy payers there are grants available for successful completion of the NVQ in Plant Operations and additional plant units. Please contact us and one of our CITB levy advisors to confirm current payment amounts.

For further information or to book an NVQ Induction, please contact a member of staff on 01189 700200.
