CPCS Scheme Information

The Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) provides cards for the plant sector of the construction and allied industries.

CPCS stands for the Construction Plant Competence Scheme- a card scheme designed to prove the skills of plant operatives.

CPCS 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.

It is the most widely recognised as the preferred card to comply with codes of practice for competence and certification. CPCS is widely accepted across all UK construction sites and attracts Test Achievement Grants from CITB.
