The Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) was set up in 2003, with the aim of standardising safe working practices within the plant sector of the construction industry.

Delivering a range of plant training courses across the UK, the CPCS ensures that anyone working within the plant sector has the relevant skills and knowledge to carry out their job competently, while meeting strict UK health and safety regulations.

After successfully completing a CPCS training course, workers will be awarded a CPCS card, providing assurance to employers that they have the ability to operate various types of plant machinery to the required standards.

The CPCS scheme is constantly evolving in response to industry feedback, as well as making sure training is up-to-date with the latest technology and safety regulations.
