Course information

This category of CPCS Plant training is aimed at those that are involved in slinging loads for cranes and lifting equipment. CPCS training courses are designed to lead to Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) qualifications, which allow those holding a valid qualification to carry a CPCS card.

This course is sometimes wrongly confused with a vehicle banksman course for those involved in traffic or vehicle marshalling operations outside of construction. Crane drivers do not always have clear visibility of the loading area, especially when tower cranes are employed. In the context of this CPCS qualification the banksman element relates to being in charge of the crane movements from the point of loading and unloading using safe systems of communication with the crane driver.

The A40 course aims to train operators in the theoretical and practical parts of the slinger/signaller role. The aim of which is passing the CPCS technical test.

A typical CPCS A40 course will include: how to calculate weights and sizes of loads and how to inform the plant operator of this. In addition, a typical course covers how to select, use and maintain the appropriate lifting tackle for a job, clear and accepted signals for moving a load, the slinger/signaller’s responsibilities and how moving loads can affect the stability of a crane.

The CPCS technical test at the end of the course includes a theory and practical test.

As with other CPCS categories there are foundation or novice courses for those with little experience and as well as experienced worker courses. Course choice will depend on how much experience the delegate has.

* Please note that for all CPCS tests, candidates must have successfully completed the CSCS Health, Safety and Environment touchscreen test for Operatives within the past two years.

CSCS Health & Safety tests can be booked through Central Construction Training to be taken at our Cannock, West Midlands test centre.
