Types of CPCS Cards

The CPCS scheme covers sixty categories of plant and related occupations.

White CPCS CardCards are available for testers and trainers but the most common ones are for operators, with versions provided for competent operators.

The difference between the two is that the latter has to have a relevent construction NVQ.

CPCS Card Qualifications

CSCS TestBoth competent and trained operators have to complete CPCS practical and theory tests to prove their operating ability and knowledge.

They most also pass the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test to demonstrate their health and safety awareness. The competent operator additionally has to have achieved an NVQ or SVQ competence qualification.

The holder of a trained operator CPCS card can subsequently move up to become a competent operator by adding the NVQ or SVQ qualification at a later date.

The Trained Operator CPCS Card

The trained operator CPCS card is issued for a period of two years and is not renewable since it is expected that the holder will gain the necessary qualification during this period and then move up.

Since the scheme supports ongoing learning, the competent operator's CPCS card is renewable every five years and the holder has to show up-to-date knowledge of health and safety as well as other aspects at this time.

Construction Site Access with a CPCS Card

The CPCS scheme aims to provide identification for those plant operators with the necessary knowledge and skills so they can gain access to construction sites.

It also aims to raise health and safety standards as well as improving employment opportunities for plant operators.

Prospective employers know that holders of the CPCS card have received health and safety training that is specifically tailored for plant operators and that those operators have successfully undergone practical and theory tests.
