Add categories and/or endorsements to your Black Tester Card

How to add a category or endorsement.

  • Hold a valid in date Managing and Coordinating Plant certificate
  • Hold a valid in date First Aid certificate
  • Hold a valid in date Managers & Professionals (MAP) CITB health, safety and environment (HSE) test
  • Achieve the CPCS advanced practical test within two years of the HS&E test

You are not required to pass the Advanced theory test to add a further endorsement regardless of when the original card was issued.

The CPCS Test Centre where you achieved the advanced practical test will provide you with a partially completed F3/1 Application form for a First CPCS Tester card or to add further categories. The NOCN Job Cards Quality Assurance Personnel present at the advanced practical test will sign the declaration.

This form, along with copies of relevant certificates should be sent to the mailing address on the reverse of the form. There is no need to attach payment as the cost of the application is included in the CPCS Advanced Technical Test notification fees.
