We have a purpose built training centre based at our Norwich depot.  Whilst it was initially created to service our internal training needs, we now offer our courses to external companies.  Take a look and see if we can support your requirements in crane and lifting operations.

NVQs – SQA Approved Centre


Approved to deliver NVQs through SQA awarding organisation

The (Red) Trained Operatives CPCS card is awarded upon successful completion of the initial training course and remains valid for 2 years.  During that time, it is necessary to achieve the relevant NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) for the category shown on your (Red) CPCS card.

Thorough initial training is obviously the right starting point to ensure safe operations.  Most people would accept that experience has an important part to play as well.  Hence the NVQ scheme comes in, allowing you to prove you are competent in the job.

To be able to gain a CPCS competence card (Blue) you must first obtain the relevant NVQ.  We deliver all lifting related NVQs required to upgrade Red “Trained Operator” cards to Blue “Competent Operator” cards.  We offer NVQs for Slinger Signaller, Crane Supervisor, Mobile Crane Operator and also Appointed Person.  Get in touch for more information and to book your NVQ.
