Further Information

To renew a CPCS Blue Competent Operator card, an operator is required to:

1. Pass the CITB Health, safety and environment test (within two years of application receipt)

2. Pass the CPCS renewal Test for each category of plant being renewed (within two years of application receipt)

3. Demonstrate on-going practical operating experience through a choice of routes:
- Logbook
- On-Site Assessment
- CPCS Practical Test
- SVQ or NVQ

4. Hold a valid Blue Competent Operator Card that has not expired.

Note:
Where SVQ or NVQ units relevant to a category being renewed have been achieved within the previous two years of the renewal date, the logbook or On-Site Assessment does not need to be undertaken in order to renew that category. Furthermore for this concession, the grouping of categories for NVQ and SVQ purposes does not apply.

1. Categories added to an existing competent card within the previous two years  of the card’s life are exempt from taking the renewal test for that category only. All remaining categories must meet the renewal criteria.

2. The CPCS renewal test may be taken up to two years prior to card expiry, but the renewed card can only be applied for up to six months prior to the renewal date.

Further detailed information regarding the renewal criteria can be found within the CPCS Scheme Booklet for Operators and can be downloaded from www.citb.co.uk/cpcsdownloads

If you are unsure of which categories are currently held or if exemptions apply, please contact the CPCS Helpline on 0844 815 7274.
