Types of Cards

Trained Operator Card (RED)

The CPCS Red Card, also known as the Trained Operator Card, is a card provided by the CPCS for those that are at the initial stage of their career in plant operation. This card verifies the core skills and knowledge to work in their chosen field (under supervision) while they complete the applicable SVQ or NVQ or other relevant vocational qualifications.

Once you've received your Red CPCS Trained Operator Card, it will last for 2 years. During these 2 years, you must work towards and achieve your NVQ in Plant Operations to upgrade to a Blue CPCS Competence Card.


Competent Operator Card (BLUE)

A Competent Operator Card (COC) is a standardized document issued by the UK's Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) that allows individuals to become authorized construction site supervisors. It confirms that the holder has demonstrated a level of health and safety awareness through a competency based-test, underpinning knowledge previously through a CPCS theory test, operating ability previously through a CPCS practical test, and operating competence on the type of plant (evidenced by an SVQ or NVQ or employer confirmation of competence).
