CPCS Accreditation Training

CPCS

What is CPCS?

CPCS is recognised by UK Build and Major Home Builders Group (MHBG), amongst others, as the preferred card to comply with codes of practice for competence and certification. It was launched in 2003 at the request of employers, to help them comply with regulations and requirements, and aims to apply common standards for all plant operators. CPCS covers a large range of plant and plant-related categories, and more are continually added.

CPCS is owned by the Construction Industry Training Board (otherwise known as CITB) which allocates staff to manage and administer it on behalf of the CPCS Management Committee that develops its policy and strategy.

The cards available within the CPCS scheme are:
