CPA Card Scheme Open Meetings 2019
Following a meeting organised by the Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) in April focussed on the topic of Training of Plant in Construction (TOPIC), the CPA will be hosting a series of meetings in 2019 focussing on the current issues surrounding card schemes.
The need for discussions on this topic was instigated by the announcement made by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) that they would be divesting their Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) - their card scheme for plant operators - to an external organisation and have since confirmed that the awarding body NOCN are the preferred bidders.
Following a survey of CPA members on card schemes, respondents welcomed the opportunity to attend meetings to have a national discussion to see how card schemes will in future interact with employers within the construction industry.
The CPA will host a number of regional meetings around the country commencing late January 2019. To find out how to make your voice heard, click here.
