BSD Training is approved to carry out a wide variety of tests to CPCS standard and our centre has passed strict accreditation and monitoring visits ensuring we provide CPCS tests to a high standard and our facilities also meet the strict guidelines set out in test specifications.

We can train and assess delegates from throughout Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England to ensure they gain the appropriate machine operator category they need to work on the majority of sites in the UK.

The Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) is one of the largest and most recognised card schemes for the plant industry. It provides a single skills card for the plant sector of the construction industry. Since its launch in 2003 over 280,000 cards have been issued covering a wide range of plant categories.

There are 2 types of CPCS card that you can obtain;

Red Card - This is a 2 year trained operator card that is not renewable, however this card can be upgraded to the blue competent operator card

Blue Card - This is for operators that have previous experience and hold NVQ's in their field.
If you do not currently have an NVQ in the relevant plant category we can complete this with you if necessary.
