COVID-19 Update (30 June 2020)

Staff are now returning to work due to customer demand. We have carried out a comprehensive risk assessment for all visitors and staff at our training centre, ensuring a safe and protected environment.

DVSA practical tests will be available from the middle of July. Contact Joe Dalton on 01392 42 62 42 to book you place.

We are also getting busy on construction and agricultural plant, forklift and other types of training. Driver CPC is still being offered online at a greatly reduced price.

CITB Courses

CITB courses we offer:

Route 1: To achieve a red trained operator card

This route is for a candidate with no mobile plant experience. Duration of training depends on the type of plant. One day will be allocated to take the CPCS testing programme, consisting of theory and practical elements. Companies who pay levy to CITB may be eligible for grant for training and testing.

Route 2: To upgrade an existing red trained operator card to a blue competent operator card

This involves achieving an NVQ in plant operations in the desired category of plant and can either be done through the EWPA (experienced worker practical assessment) route or the OSAT (Onsite assessment) route, depending on level of experience. This will take approximately 2½ days plus 1 day to take the CPCS testing programme. The CPCS testing programme, consists of theory and practical elements.

Funding may be available for the NVQ part of the programme and companies which pay levy to CITB may be eligible for grant for the testing programme.
