How to get a Blue Competent Operator Card:
To get this card you need to:
- provide proof of achievement of the SVQ or NVQ for the category being applied for to the CPCS Test Centre
- pass the relevant CITB health, safety and environment test
- achieve the CPCS theory test (within two years of the CITB health, safety and environment test)
- achieve the CPCS practical test (within six months of the CPCS theory test and within two years of the CITB health, safety and environment test)
On achievement of the CPCS practical test, the CPCS test centre will request the competent operator card on your behalf.
On receipt of your first competent operator card, you will be sent a CPCS logbook. The role of the logbook is to record life-long learning and evidence towards the renewal of a competent operator card.
