CPCS Technical Tests
Nationwide Training and Safety Services Ltd have been granted Test Centre Status for our training grounds in Cambridgeshire (a satellite centre is being sourced in Suffolk for 2009).
The Technical Test is in two parts and any of our CPCS Trainers and Testers are available to discuss your needs or queries:
- A CPCS Theory Test - consists of a number of questions on Health & Safety and Technical elements for the type of equipment under test
- A CPCS Practical Test - consists of a number of tasks to judge the competency of the operator in skill and judgement whilst using the machine
NOTE: The CPCS Theory element is required to be taken and achieved prior to an attempt on the CPCS Practical Test. This is to ensure that the Candidate has demonstrated a fundamental knowledge of the category for safety reasons.
