The CPCS (Construction and Plant Competence Scheme) is a widely recognised skills card scheme for plant operators and other associated operations in the construction and allied industries in the UK.

Your operators must have appropriate qualifications recognised by the CPCS to be able to operate any type of plant.

One Qualification Is All You Need

The best part about this certification you don’t have to qualify for each category of plant.

NVQ Units We Offer

We offer NVQ certifications for the majority of categories covered by CPCS.

The best part about this certification you don’t have to qualify for each category of plant. For instance, if you hold an NVQ for operating a forward tipping dumper, you can convert any other type of dump truck or dumper to a blue card. You don’t have to apply for a separate certification.


Accredited and experienced training

North West Services is an accredited training centre for NVQ certifications for plant and other associated operations. We deliver high quality training and make sure that your operators don’t just qualify but leave our training centre with a set of skills that will stay with them for life.

  • Just done my cpcs a17 telehandler training here for a week as a complete novice. Never stepped foot on a machine before so I was nervous but this company is excellent. I’ve never had a better trainer Richard and mike have changed my life and I will be forever thankfull. If you want a ticket and are prepared to put the work in don’t look anywhere else I feel confident going straight on site now I have learnt the right way. If I could give 10 stars I would.
