Training Guidance

Please see below. This table will allow you to self-assess the required number of years' or hours' experience you will need to help achieve qualification in the CPCS technical tests. It will also help you gauge the required number of training days you will require, should you not hold any experience as such. If you have limited or no experience on the category of plant required, CITP Ltd will offer training on any of the approved plant categories below. If you already have two years’ experience, you have the option of taking the CPCS technical tests only, however we always advise you have some form of training. This could be a day of refresher training, covering the theory side of the course and raising any bad habits you may have picked up or we can offer a half day session covering the theory aspect of the course only. For novice candidates, they would need to attend the full training course. We are happy to discuss your training needs and quote on the best options available for your specific requirements and budget. We also offer all CPCS tester qualifications on the categories listed below.
