As some of you may be aware there is a new CPCS category, A78 (A-F) Vacuum Excavation that is now a requirement to operate vacuum excavators.
"It is with great pleasure to announce Force One can now provide both
training and testing for this category to gain a CPCS Trained Operative Red Card"
Force One have a training centre with facilities to accommodate up to eight candidates at any one time and a tester available *subject to availability to cover the practical test assessing categories;
A: Trailer – Manual Arm
B: Trailer – Semi Powered Arm
C: Non-LGV (Manual)
D: Non LGV (Semi-Powered Arm)
E: LGV (Semi Powered Arm)
F: LGV (Fully Powered Arm)
My team worked extremely hard, having tester training, producing in-depth training course material, and of course getting the centre up and running and approved via CITB to provide the theory and practical testing on site at our premises in March, Cambridgeshire.
A massive well done to the team involved with the set-up from start to finish – we have now gained yet another service with-in the vacuum excavation industry.
Our first Theory and Practical Assessment has taken place already with a positive result – Luke Riley, one of the first candidates to be tested at our site is now awaiting the arrival of his CPCS Trained Operative Card.
Force One will be offering vacuum excavator training for advanced, intermediate and beginners, should it be required with theory and practical assessment dates available to suit your diary. All bookings will be based on a first come, first served basis.
Our marketing team are currently working on a new website where booking information, download links and training information will be regularly updated, however in the meantime take a look at the Force One company website where you will find a wealth of information about vacuum excavation.
