CPCS Training

We also offer training courses which are shared across small groups of trainees. This delivery of our courses splits the costs of operating the machinery, instructor and venue costs. We maintain our own fleet of new plant machinery which we can schedule for training whenever we need, from our Essex headquarters.

CPCS Testing

Industrial Training Services Ltd offers a range of CPCS testing at our test-centre in Billericay, Essex, convenient for London and Kent. Using our own plant machinery, we offer flexible testing options. We employ full-time CPCS instructors that allow us to be more flexible when we give out dates and schedule tests.

Our courses and CPCS testing is monitored to ensure strict compliance to scheme rules, meaning that contractors’ can be certain of the standards offered by qualified individuals.

CPCS cards can be verified on-site if there are doubts about validity

We use our own plant

We utilise our own plant machinery for CPCS training courses and year-round testing. Our machines are maintained by experienced fitters and are given a designated life-cycle on purchase. We currently operate a modern fleet as below:
JCB 360 Excavator Training Courses
Telescopic Handler Training Courses
Forward Tipper Dumper Training Courses
CPCS Courses

We offer a range of training courses designed for operatives with limited or no experience. These are held at our test-centre in Billericay, Essex – easily reachable from both London and Kent.

Why choose one of our CPCS courses?
These courses are designed as a ‘fast-track’ course to a CPCS trained operative card (a red card). They work by splitting the training costs incurred. Courses are structured to maximise time on the machine, and testing takes place on the last day.

Our instructors work with candidates to ensure they are keeping up with the normal course progression. This means we achieve exceptional first-time pass rates.

Common Combination
Where machinery interacts commonly on workings sites – we try to simulate real scenarios on our courses. An example of this is on our 360 excavator course. We include basic training on the forward tipping dumper to help the operative understand the interaction day-to-day.

Lorry Loader Testing
We can also offer Lorry Loader testing if you bring your machine to our site in Essex. This must conform to the specifications demanded by CPCS available online.
