CPCS (A09) - Dumper Training & Testing

The CPCS Dumper Driver Course is aimed at operators of forward tipping dumpers. The course covers both the theoretical and practical elements of the dumper, with a view to passing the CPCS technical test.

Whilst both novice and experienced workers are eligible for this course, we would recommend that those who have previous experience, typically 2 or more years’ constant and recent experience, apply for an Experienced Worker CPCS course. All delegates must have passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test no more than two years before the course start date.

Successful candidates who pass the CPCS Dumper Training course will receive the CPCS Red Card (Trained Operator) for this category, which is valid for 2 years.

If you are a Private Individual looking to obtain a CPCS card for a Dumper, we would recommend reading further about CPCS Training and the Private Individual, before making a specific enquiry relating to a Dumper Driving Course.

CPCS Course Detail
