The Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) provides a single skills card for the Plant Sector of the Construction and allied industries. It was launched in 2003 and since then over 280,000 cards have been issued across 60 categories of plant and related occupations.
One of the schemes main successes is the CPCS Technical Test, delivered by CPCS Testers working through CPCS Test Centres. The Technical Test ensures independent assessment of an individuals operating ability and their underpinning knowledge on entry to the scheme.
CPCS training is recognised by the UK Contractors Group (UKCG) and Major House Builders Group as the preferred card to comply with codes of practice for competence and certification.
Morgan Training Solutions has access to 20 CPCS Test centres nationwide offering CPCS Technical Tests in all the categories of plant covered by the CPCS scheme. We can also offer the NVQ assessments required to move from Red Trained Operator Card to Blue Competent Operators card. We have CPCS test centres covering West London – Birmingham – Manchester – Essex but we also have partnerships with other centre’s that mean we can cover most of the UK.
Most tests need to be completed at a CPCS test centre but some can be delivered on your site, please call for further information and please click here for complete list of categories available.
All candidates must have passed the 'Touch Screen Safety Test' within the last 2 years when entering the scheme for the first time or when adding a category, through either full foundation or experienced worker assessment route.
