This Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) telehandler training course is aimed at operators of telehandlers or telescopic handlers, designed to train them in the theoretical and practical parts of the telehandler. All delegates need to have passed the CSCS Health, Safety and Environment touchscreen test for Operatives within the past two years.
The A17 telehandler course is split into 3 separate categories; these are:
Delegates will need to choose which category of telehandler training to take based on the requirements of their current job role.
There are both Foundation and Experienced Worker telehandler courses available for these categories; Experienced Worker courses are only for operators with 2 or more years’ experience.
Please note it is also possible to apply for the Technical Tests relating to CPCS A17 only, as well as A17E, which is the Telescopic Handler Suspended Loads Endorsement Course (as well as the Technical Tests pertaining to this course only)
If you are a Private Individual looking to undertake telehandler training to obtain a CPCS card, 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 Telehandler Training Course.
Successful delegates of any of these CPCS telehandler course categories will gain the CPCS red card (trained operator), which is valid for 2 years. Candidates who hold this will then need to achieve the NVQ in Plant Operations within these 2 years, in order to upgrade to a Competent Operator 'Blue' card.
Course content varies depending on the category and level of experience of the operator (as to whether they have selected a Foundation or Experienced Worker course).
The Foundation/Novice course is longer to allow for practical training and further in-depth theory.
The CPCS technical test at the end of the telehandler training course at either level and for all categories includes a theory and practical test.
