CPCS (Construction Plant Competence Scheme) provides a registration card scheme acknowledged by industry for those involved in plant operations by recognising skills, knowledge and understanding, competence and qualifications.

Our course involves moving from a Trained Operator (Red) card to a Competent Operator (Blue) card.

We also offer the Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Plant Operations – Processing qualification which has been developed for delivery in a working environment; this means your employees study for this qualification as they work. It has been designed to develop and recognise your employees’ skills, knowledge and competences so that they can work in Processing within the construction industry or progress onto further learning.
