CPA Card Scheme Open Meetings 2019

News & Events
Delegates at a CPA-organised Training of Plant in Construction (TOPIC) event held in April 2018 discussed the interface between plant-based card schemes and construction sector employers and the current issues of using card schemes.
The driver for the discussions was the announcement made previously by 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. Registrations for each event will be open from Monday 19th November.
