The Scheme is made up of a number of core elements, which are used to demonstrate the skills, competence and qualifications that determine eligibility for Scheme

The cards available within the CPCS Scheme are;

  • Trained Operator (Red) Card
  • Competent Operator (Blue) Card

To obtain a CPCS Red Card delegates must (in this order):

  1. Carry out any training necessary to bring you up to the standard required to enable you to pass the CPCS technical test. This can be delivered by a trainer.
  2. Pass the relevant CITB health, safety and environment test.
  3. Achieve the CPCS theory test (within two years of the CITB health, safety and environment test)
  4. Achieve the CPCS practical test (within six months of the CPCS theory test and within two years of the CITB health, safety and environment test).

Both CPCS theory and practical tests are delivered by an approved CPCS test centre.

To upgrade a Red Card to a Blue Card, delegates must achieve a Level 2 Plant Operations SVQ or NVQ, with the appropriate units relevant to the category, within 2 years of obtaining the CPCS Red Card

CSCS is the leading skills certification scheme within the UK construction industry.

CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out.

The Scheme keeps a database of people working in construction who have achieved, or are committed to achieving a recognised construction related qualification.

Most principal contractors and major house builders require construction workers on their sites to hold a valid CSCS card.

To obtain a CSCS card candidates need to pass the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test and provide proof that they have had the training and qualifications required to carry out their job.

UCT can deliver a wide range of training and qualifications that lead to a CSCS card.
