The aim of the 180 Excavator Course is to provide delegates with the basic knowledge and practical skills involved in operating a 180 Degree Backhoe Loader 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 buit training facility at Blckridge, West Lothian or on your site.

The duration of the course depends on the number of candidates and their experience, in general our courses consist of 8 days 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 - which must be undertaken at our registered test centre, candidates will be issued with a CPCS Red Trained Operators Card, before the aforementioned tests 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 180 Degree Backhoe Loader complete this training and testing.
