CPCS (A04) - Tower Crane Training & Testing

This construction plant competence scheme (CPCS) training course is aimed at those operating a Tower Crane in a construction environment. 

There are three endorsements for the CPCS Tower Crane course which are:

A: Trolley Jib – Cab Controlled
B: Luffing Jib – Cab Controlled
C: Trolley Jib – Remote Controlled*

*The A04C category has superseded the Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane (A63A and B) course which was available previously.

The Foundation course with Cab Controlled endorsements (A04A and A04B) typically lasts 10 days and covers 9 days of both practical and theory training, with a final day to test both practical technical knowledge and theory. Whereas the Foundation course for A04C typically lasts 5 days. 

Successful candidates will receive the CPCS Red Card (Trained Operator), which is valid for 2 years.

Please note that for all CPCS tests, candidates must have successfully completed the CSCS Health, Safety and Environment touchscreen test for Operatives within the past two years.

If you are a Private Individual looking to obtain a CPCS card for a Tower Crane, 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 Tower Crane training course.

CPCS Course Detail

This CPCS course provides thorough training to operators of Tower Cranes, covering both practical and theory elements. Operators will be able to safely carry out their role upon successful completion.

This CPCS course includes the following elements:

  • Safe, productive crane operation
  • Understanding and recognising the signals for crane operations
  • Routine maintenance and minor adjustments. This includes how to understand the capabilities of the equipment
  • How to secure, check and maintain counterweights
  • Relevant legislation, statutory regulations and the operator’s own legal responsibilities in respect to lifting equipment plus any relevant safety precautions
  • How to decide on safe loads, understanding safe load indicators and overload warning devices
  • How to gauge the effect of shock loading on the crane

The CPCS practical test for the Tower Crane must be completed within ninety minutes and will consist of the candidate using the machine to complete a variety of activities and manoeuvres including lifting and placing loads.

The CPCS theory test is a verbal questions and answer session which will take approximately an hour to complete.
