CPCS Training (A40b) - Slinger Signaller Course - Foundation/Novice

£870 per delegate

Duration: 4 days

The aim of this course is to provide delegates with the practical and theoretical knowledge required to enable them to prepare a range of loads for lifting and safely direct the movement of cranes using recognised signalling systems.

Our five day course offers extra practical training time than the typical four day course. This gives greater preparation for the CPCS A40 Practical Test, as well as enhancing delegates’ post-course knowledge.
