The CPCS A21 Wheeled Loading Shovel course has been developed to assist operatives in how to safely and effectively operate a wheeled loading shovel through classroom and practical instruction.
This course is a combination of practical tutorials and classroom discussion, with assessment carried out via both theory and practical tests.
Potential operators with no formal training should take this course, as well as wheeled loading shovel operators who require a refresher course.
Successful candidates will be awarded a CITB National Construction College certificate and, upon completion of the CPCS Technical Tests, a CPCS Red Trained Operator Card.
Before applying for this course applicants must have passed a CITB Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) test within two years of the course. Applicants must also have a good understanding of written and spoken English.
Once the CPCS A21 Wheeled Loading Shovel course has been completed candidates may wish to apply for the Competent Operator Card, Excavator 360 Tracked above 10 tonnes course, Dump Truck course and Excavator 180 Wheeled course.
