Appointed Person (A61)
In response to candidate feedback we offer the Appointed Person course over either 4 or 5 days, depending on experience. Many candidates find the CPCS A61 Appointed Person Technical Test particularly challenging, even some of those with extensive lifting operations experience, so the extra day may be beneficial to you.
We think that many of our customers would benefit from doing a day release Appointed Person course and we would like your feedback on this; please contact us to give us your thoughts.
Successful candidates will be awarded a CPCS Trained Operator card for Appointed Person (Lifting Operations)
The course must be followed up by an NVQ Level 5 Diploma in Controlling Lifting Operations – Planning Lifts (Construction), within two years. This will award you with a CPCS Competent Operator card for Appointed Person (Lifting Operations).
