CPCS cards provide a uniform skills card system for operators using plant within the
construction sector. Indeed on many sites a CPCS card is a mandatory requirement to operate
plant on site, for example, on UKGC sites. The Construction Plant Competence Scheme is a card
scheme, which proves the skills of plant operators, and is the mostly widely recognized scheme
for plant safety. CPCS cards are issued on successful completion of competence programs and
these help to demonstrate the operating skills and health and safety awareness of workers.
There are a large number of CPCS training courses, including courses for lifting operations and
lift supervisors, slinger signallers, excavators, dumpers, telescopic handlers, dumpers, skid steers
The mechanisms of CPCS can be quite involved, so it is always a good idea to make an enquiry
before booking. Training needs will depend on the whether the operator is a novice or
experienced operator and there are pre-requisites for CPCS training including amongst others the
need to have passed a ConstructionSkills Health and Safety Test. There are a number of card
schemes including, red cards and blue cards. The issue of CPCS cards to operators requires them
to have carried out any training necessary to bring them up to the standard required to pass CPCS
Theory and Practical Test.
