All CPCS cardholders.
The CPCS Renewal course is designed to check the knowledge relating to the categories of plant held by the delegate. A set of 15 randomly selected multiple-choice questions, known as a module, will be available for each category of plant or for a group of similar categories. Cardholders will need to pass each module in order to retain each category when renewing their Compentent Operator (Blue Card).
Each module has 15 randomly selected multiple choice questions, which need to be answered within 15 minutes. Each module is plant specific and the questions are based on a range of topics and key knowledge expected of experienced plant operators and have been devised through consultation with plant-based employers and health and safety related data.
Cardholders will need to pass each module in order to retain each category when renewing their Competent Operator (Blue) card. There are cases where concessions apply to test bookings, in that a number of similar categories are held on a card, but only one module may need to be taken and passed. Upon successful completion of the CPCS Renewal course, delegates can apply to renew their Competent Operator Card for the categories previously held.
No equipment is required for this course.
Delegates can only renew the categories that they have previously been awarded.
