Loading Shovel (Tracked or Wheeled)
The aim of the Loading Shovel (Tracked or Wheeled) Course is to provide candidates with the basic knowledge and practical skills involved in operating a Loading Shovel to the CPCS (Construction Plant Competence Scheme) standard.
All candidates will be trained and tested by one of Sibbald's fully accredited, expert instructors.
Training can take place either at our purpose built training facility in Blackridge, West Lothian or on your site.
The duration of the course depends on the number of candidates and the experience of each candidate, in general our courses consist of 3days training with an additional day for practical testing, this is based on 4 candidates with little or no experience, with 2 machines and 1 instructor.
On successful completion of both the Theory & Practical Elements of the Technical Test candidates will be issued with a CPCS Red Trained Operators Card, before these can take place candidates must have passed the CSCS Operatives Health & Safety Test within the 2 year period before the CPCS Test.
It is our recommendation that all personnel required to operate a Loading Shovel complete this training and testing.
