Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS)
Construction Plant Competence Scheme stands for CPCS. It’s a card scheme which acts as the proof for the skills of the plant operators. It is based on two major elements for operating the plant and i.e. health and safety awareness and professional competence. It is a kind of necessity or standard to operate as plant operators on National Contractors Federation and Major Contractors Group, and probably this is the reason there are 150,000+ individuals owning the CPCS card.
