You can follow one of two routes, depending on when your card expired. 

1)     For a 12 month SVQ or NVQ extension, you must:

  • Hold a CPCS Red Trained Operator card which is in date, or within 12 months from expiry
  • Be registered for a SVQ or NVQ relevant to the category

once these elements have been achieved, call the CPCS Helpline on 0844 815 7274, confirm your details and make a payment of £25, you will be asked to provide proof of SVQ/NVQ registration by email or post. This is a non-refundable fee for the services of processing the application.

A new card will be issued for 12 months (from date of application) to enable the SVQ/NVQ to be achieved.  Once the VQ has been achieved, you will be able to apply to Upgrade to a Blue Competent Operator card

2)     For an Additional 2 Year card, you must:

  • Hold an expired trained operator card by more than 12 months
  • Hold a valid 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)
  • Both CPCS theory and practical tests are delivered by an accredited CPCS test centre. (Find a CPCS Test Centre)
  • be registered for the SVQ or NVQ.

Once all these elements have been achieved, the CPCS test centre will request the CPCS Additional 2 year Red Trained Operator card on your behalf.
