CPCS

The Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) provides certification for plant and associated operators working in the UK construction and allied industries. The plant operator certification process is supported by CPCS Testers, who in turn are certified by CPCS.

There is no age requirement to join the scheme. However, in some cases legislation or company policy regarding the use of plant or equipment may specify different age limits for a specific working environment. This may result in the cardholder being prevented from using that plant or equipment.

Basic skills and understanding, and competency standards are defined by the scheme for:

  • plant operators

  • slinger/signallers

  • individuals securing plant and equipment to vehicles/trailers for transportation

  • individuals planning and controlling lifting operations.
