Course Details

What happens on a Crane Supervisor Course?

Most CPCS courses will run in the following format:

  • Day 1 - mostly theory-based classroom training. This is to ensure that you are confident with the theory aspect of crane supervision before you go out and complete the practical training. Depending on how your theory learning goes, you may get practical training for some of the day on your first day.
  • The next 2 days of learning is usually putting your theory knowledge into practice by completing the practical exercises of your training.
  • On the final day of your course, you will complete your theory test preparation by completing mock exam questions, and then complete your actual assessment: the CPCS technical tests.

What qualification will I get on the CPCS Crane Supervisor course?

  • CPCS Trained Operator Card (red card) on passing the CPCS technical tests.
  • CITB National Construction College e-certificate, available on request from CITB.

CPCS Cards

Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS)

The CPCS covers an extensive range of plant categories. The Construction Plant Competence Scheme uses 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 the relevant Health, Safety and Environment Test.
  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.

What is the difference between the Red and Blue CPCS 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 they deemed sufficiently experienced to without supervision. That is where the Blue CPCS card comes in.

Red CPCS Card
Each category on your red card will have it's own 2 year expiry date the card itself has no expiry. Your Red card is not renewable, this is to ensure progression towards your competent card (The Blue CPCS card). During the 2 years you will be expected to register and achieve a NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) or SVQ (Scottish Vocational Qualification) and upgrade to the Blue (competent operator) card.

Blue CPCS Card
To earn your Blue card you must meet the requirements of the Red card 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.

If you would like to read more about the application process for Red and Blue CPCS cards, read this 'How to get your CPCS Card' document from CPCS.
