CPCS 360 Excavator Training - 360 Degree Digger Training Courses (A58 & A59): This category of CPCS Plant training is relevant to those using Diggers and Excavators in construction operations. CPCS training courses are designed to lead to Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) qualifications, which allow those holding a valid qualification to carry a CPCS card.
Within this category there are two sub-categories for excavator and digger training courses; these are,
- A58 – Excavator 360 degrees – Below 10 tonnes.
- A59 - Excavator 360 degrees – Above 10 tonnes.
If you are a Private Individual looking to undertake a digger training course to obtain a CPCS card for a digger or excavator, the implications are very different from those of a CITB registered construction company. For Private Individuals it is recommended that you click on the following link with information on CPCS Training and the Private Individual, before making a specific enquiry relating to a CPCS 360 Excavator training or Digger Training Course.
If you already understand the details of the scheme and want to make CPCS training enquiry please either click here to send a general enquiry, or click on one of the courses at the bottom of this page and the scroll down to send a specific course enquiry. It is always worth making a general enquiry on CPCS training courses as course dates will not always be shown in search results, but please click here to see course dates and locations for open CPCS training courses and testing in this category.
If you are looking to operate excavators above and below 10 tonnes it is best to choose the A59 category rather than the A58. This is because the A59 qualifies you to drive both machines.
Both the 360 excavator training courses must be completed at a registered CPCS centre. In addition to this delegates must have a successfully completed a core CSCS Health and Safety Touch Screen Test, passed in the last 2 years.
When choosing to complete the CPCS A58 or A59 – 360 Excavator training course, there are two categories to choose from. You can complete either category A: Tracked or B: Wheeled. The category details are shown below:
- A58 - Tracked 360 Excavator Below 10 Tonnes
- A59a) - Tracked 360 Excavator Above 10 Tonnes (Please note - if you pass your test on a machine above ten tonnes you automatically qualify for below ten tonnes as well)
- A59b) - Wheeled 360 Excavator Above 10 Tonnes, often known as a Rubber Duck (Please note if you pass your test on a machine above ten tonnes you automatically get below ten tonnes as well)
The A58 and A59 360 excavator courses tend to be a bit longer than the other CPCS courses. This is because they are complex pieces of plant and require in depth training and practice. Depending on your level of experience, Foundation or Novice courses might run over 8 days with testing on day 9, while experienced worker courses could run for 2-4 days.
