CPCS (A66) - Compact Crane Training & Testing

The CPCS A66 course is aimed at those who operate Compact Cranes in a construction environment. Compact Cranes are designed for use in confined areas to take up as little space as possible.

There are 4 separate CPCS A66 endorsements for this category; these are:

  • A66A: Compact Crane – Static Stabilisers
  • A66B: Compact Crane – Mobile Stabilisers
  • A66C: Compact Crane – Luffing Static Duties
  • A66D: Compact Crane – 360 Pick and Carry

Passing the CSCS Health, Safety and Environment test within the last two years is a requirement to book onto all CPCS courses.

Candidates can choose between Foundation/Novice and Experienced Worker skill level courses. The Foundation course is longer in length and covers topics in more depth as this is tailored for candidates who have less than 2 years’ experience in their role as Compact Crane operator. Experienced Worker courses are shorter in length and are aimed at those who have more than 2 years recent and consistent experience operating Compact Cranes.

Those who successfully pass this CPCS course will be awarded the Red CPCS Card (Trained Operator) in this category. This can then be upgraded to the Blue CPCS Card (Competent Operator) for this category within 2 years of course completion. If this time limit is exceeded, operators will need to resit this category of CPCS training to obtain their Red CPCS card again.

If you are a private individual, please read CPCS Training and the Private Individual before making a booking for this or any other CPCS category. The implications for those wishing to undertake CPCS certification privately are very different to a business. If you have any further questions, please give us a call.
