CPCS A98 Excavator 360 Above 10 Tonnes (Lifting Operations Only) Course Description
The objective of this course is to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to safely and competently carry out Lifting Operations with a 360 Excavator <10T on site in line with CPCS guidelines. The CPCS card scheme provides a registration card scheme acknowledged by industry for those involved in plant operations by recognising skills, knowledge and understanding, competence and qualifications. The scheme is based on a mix of occupational competence, experience on site and health and safety awareness.
Existing Red Trained Operator / Blue Competent Operator Card Holders:
Candidates may be awarded Endorsement C on application without the need for further testing (subject to initial test completion dates). When updating categories A58/59 A and/or B to the blue card, endorsement C will be awarded automatically if it has not been applied for (on the application form).
Some existing cardholders (having undertaken the technical test after 09/07/2012) will need to undertake the A58 or A59 C practical tests as an alternative to the A97 or A98 theory testing in order to gain the Lifting Operations endorsement, this as the questions would have been included within their initial theory testing, albeit they would not have undertaken the shortened practical test.
CPCS Theory Test (Verbal – 20 Minutes)
Successful candidates will obtain a CPCS ‘Construction Plant Competence Scheme’ card on completion, if they don’t currently hold a relevant S/NVQ they’ll be issued with a CPCS Red Trained Operator card (2 year validity). During the 2 year lifespan of the card candidates will need to work towards the relevant plant operations NVQ that will enable them to upgrade their Blue Competent Operator card (5 year validity).
All candidates must have achieved the relevant CITB HS&E test within 2 years of their booked CPCS test date. It is important that any candidates have a good understanding of spoken and written English, interpreters are available upon request for those who are not fluent in English.
