CPA has had a long association with CPCS, dating back to its origins in the Certificate of Training Achievement (CTA) scheme. Following CITB’s announcement about divesting CPCS, CPA Council has been considering what the change of ownership means for CPA Members.
Kevin Minton, CPA Chief Executive, said: “Many CPA Members will have employees who hold CPCS cards, and much of the equipment owned by our Members will at some time be operated by a CPCS accredited operator. The scheme is an important part of many hire companies’ businesses. We want to make sure that the investment our Members have made in training and competence is protected. We have therefore offered our support to NOCN, the new owners of the scheme, to help achieve a successful and smooth transition from the public sector into the third sector.
“Within the CPA team and amongst our Members there is a considerable body of expertise and experience, and we will be talking with NOCN about how access to that could help them establish the scheme in its new home. We want card-holders and their employers to be able to see that it is very much ‘business as usual’ at CPCS,” he continued.
