Improve Your Career and Employment Prospects By Using CPCS Cards

Increase your chances of employment and career progression by showing employers and clients that you have been trained and are safety aware. You will need to pass a Health and Safety Test as a prerequisite before you can be awarded any CPCS card. There are several cards available, but the most common are the CPCS Trained Operator (red) and the next level which is the CPCS Competent Operator (blue).

CPCS Training covers a wide range of machinery but all require you to pass the Health and Safety Test before you go on to pass the technical test, and a CPCS Theory and Practical Test to gain your CPCS card. You will need to pass a training course for each relevant plant category and employers should support their plant operators to undertake the CPCS card scheme as part of their EER (Employers Rights and Responsibility) remit.

Benefit from studying for your NVQ with Trade Assessments so you achieve the skills you need to go straight onto your blue competency CPCS card, after you have completed your NVQ.
