    Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS)

    The CPCS covers a large range of plant categories, the Construction Plant Competence Scheme uses both practical and written assessments to ensure you are competent in your chosen category. These assessments are taken at the end of your training.

    1. Pass your Health, Safety and Environment Test (click here to book your test through the CITB).
    2. Attend training days in your chosen category.
    3. At the end of your training, complete your category assessments (assessment fee's are included in your course price).
    4. Receive your Trained Operator (red) or Competent Operator (blue) card.

    Red or Blue Card

    You can start working within your chosen category once you have earned the Red (trained operator) card. The card confirms the core skills, knowledge and understanding required, however a newly trained operator will still require full and close supervision until deemed sufficiently experienced to without supervision.

    Red Card
    Each category on your red card will have it's own 2 year expiry date the card itself has no expiry. During the 2 years you can upgrade to the Blue (competent operator) card.
    Your Red card is not renewable, this is to ensure progression towards your competent card.

    Blue Card
    To earn your Blue card you must meet the requirements of the Red plus complete an NVQ or SVQ in your category.
    Your Blue card will last for 5 years, each category on the card will have the expiry of the card itself. You will have to renew your card within the 5 years.

      1. You need to have passed the Health, Safety and Environment test (more info) within the last 2 years.
      2. Complete the relevant NVQ for your category.

      Red Trained Operator Card
      Each category on your red card will have it’s own 2 year expiry date the card itself has no expiry. During the 2 years you can upgrade to the Blue (competent operator) card.

      Your Red card is not renewable, this is to ensure progression towards your competent card. However if you register for an NVQ within the grace period (normally 12 months after expiry) you can apply for a grace period.
