Construction Plant Competency Scheme (CPCS)
What is the CPCS card scheme? Increasingly, clients and employers are demanding proof of competence from all operators on their sites. Both the major contractors group and the national house building federation insist upon the scheme. The plant CPCS red or blue card proves to employers that you have both the skills and practical experience to do the job effectively.
National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ)
Construction plant NVQs were introduced to enable people already in a certain trade to gain relevant competency qualifications. They are qualifications related to specific areas and based on the work you actually do. Gaining the qualification is through assessment on your work site. The criteria for which is laid down by the constructionskills awards. We specialise in providing NVQs in plant and piling.
Wyevern Plant Competency Scheme
Wyevern offer their own Plant Licences to employers who do not need nationally recognised qualifications and card schemes. This scheme meets the HSE requirements and is delivered by nationally accredited Instructors. All plant categories are within this scheme. This scheme is cost effective to both SME’s and small companies who either run their own sites or work in static locations i.e. depots.
Other Construction Courses
Wyevern offer a wide range of other courses that construction companies need. For example we offer Confined Spaces, Disc Cutter, Quick Hitch and Banksman courses. All courses are run by nationally accredited Instructors/Lecturers. We continue to develop new courses which we will bespoke for individual clients needs.
