At Training For The Future we offer a range of CPCS courses. We thought we’d give you the details of what exactly a CPCS course is and how it can benefit you.
CPCS stands for the Construction Plant Competence scheme, the scheme was established as a way of certifying workers to be able to properly use and safety check the machines they work with. Although it is not the law to have a CPCS card to work on a construction plant, it certainly establishes a level of competency. On some reputable sites such as Major Contractors Group and National Contractors Federation they require most employees to carry a CPCS card with them to operate the majority of the plants.
The training focusses on health and safety checks and a working competence, which is essential when dealing with this kind of machinery. CPCS has become industry standard for the construction industry and other sectors, as way to maintain safety levels and the quality of work being produced.
How does CPCS benefit you?
As a plant operator it is important you continue to sustain high levels of health and safety, not only for you, but for those around you, getting a CPCS qualification will ensure you are doing the correct checks and using machinery properly. It’s never worth the risk of guessing. As well as this you will find it easier to secure work, a CPCS card tells an employer you know what you’re doing, and here is the proof.
As an employer, the Construction Plant Competence Scheme has made it easier to ensure standards are kept high and hazards to a minimum. By either getting your employees trained on a CPCS course, or hiring employees who are already trained, you are securing the quality of your business output.
