News & Events



The CPA are pleased to announce the appointment of Rob Squires to the role of Training and Safety Manager and will be supporting all of the CPA Special Interest Groups and the Training of Plant in Construction Group (TOPIC).


As training issues are high on the agenda and with the ongoing review of CITB and its function, Rob will work closely with them and other organisations to ensure that Member’s training requirements are met, relevant and are delivered properly. Rob will further both ensure that grant aid continues to be available and will be seeking new funding opportunities for Members from CITB and other funding bodies.


Rob joins the CPA after his time as Training Manager of the National Demolition Training Group and brings with him a strong training and management background, starting with his time in the Armed Forces and latterly at CITB where he oversaw the staffing and delivery mechanisms for all of the construction based card schemes including CSCS, CISRS and particularly CPCS.


CPA Chief Executive Colin Wood said, “I’ve known Rob for a number of years and I’m very pleased to welcome him to our CPA team and know that he will make a great contribution to the work of the Association and to the plant sector in general”.


CPA Director Kevin Minton said, “Rob’s background in training delivery and management will be of great benefit to the Association and with the advent of the CSCS-badged card initiative which is affecting many of the CPA members, Rob’s knowledge of card scheme requirements and his contacts with CITB and CSCS will allow us to thoroughly support the membership on these issues”.


Rob added, “I’m very pleased to be joining the CPA and look forward to making a valuable contribution to the Association and supporting the Members in navigating the sometimes complex issues of carding, funding, qualification and training delivery requirements”.
