CPCS TEST CENTRE posted on 19/08/2009

Changes to the Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) came in on the 1 August 2008 in line with the revisions made after a widespread industry review that began last year.

The key changes will include:

Technical Test

A new Technical CPCS Test is a new core element which will apply across all categories and routes of entry and will replace the Intermediate Certificate.

The Technical CPCS Test includes:

A CPCS Practical Test of operating ability and practical skills and

A CPCS Theory Test of underpinning knowledge (which incorporate questions relating to underpinning knowledge, specific category and environment related H&S, and operators’ rights and responsibilities).

This will be supported by a CPCS training syllabus, against which training can be tailored to meet individual requirements through a variety of channels, including accredited CPCS trainers, in-house trainers, and colleagues.

CPCS test Centres

The role of the CPCS Training Provider will be removed under the new Scheme rules and replaced with a CPCS Test Centre under contract with CPCS.
A requirement for the CPCS Test Centres will be the provision of a suitable CPCS test Site with welfare facilities, a theory test area, and a practical test area which meets the specifications for the CPCS Technical Test.

The CPCS Test Centres will provide a single point of contact and deliver a complete package of services to support the operator from Trained Operator card application through to Competent Operator card renewal; including H&S testing, CPCS Technical Tests and S/NVQ Assessments.

Don't miss your chance to pass the theory test.
