About the training

MPH Training was setup in 2008 specifically to comply fully with the requirements of the Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) that came into force for all test centre’s from 1st January 2009.

Our goal is to make your employees safer and more productive in their jobs.

We work alongside companies to deliver bespoke training to meet their individual needs.

All of our testers and trainers are professionally qualified and have a vast amount of experience gained both in the industry and training environments.

CPCS Training

CPCS is a card scheme administered by Cskills to prove the skill of plant operators, it has now arguably become the most widely recognised card scheme for plant operators in the UK.  Nearly all  big construction sites require their operators to hold a red CPCS card as a minimum.

Whether you require a Red Trained Operator Card, a Blue Competence Card, or you are moving from a Red Trained Operator card to a Blue Competent Operator card,  MPH have the right people and facilities to ensure that your operators receive the best preparation to become competent operators when they get out on to site.

Prior to being registered for your CPCS Theory and Practical test, you must pass the CSkills Health and Safety Test (if not passed in the last 2 years);

You will be required to complete a Theory Assessment per category, sample question can be found at It is recommended that these questions are viewed, as the Practical Assessment cannot be taken before successful completion of the Theory Assessment.

We are able to deliver an extensive range of testing and training across a wide variety of categories:


The National Plant Operators Registration Scheme (NPORS) was established in 1992 and is now one of the UKs leading accreditation and registration bodies.  NPORS works across the construction, industrial, utilities, warehousing and distribution, agricultural, ports and marine sectors.  It offers flexibility, whilst maintaining standards both nationally and internationally, by working with industry and accredited training providers.

Plant NVQ

Gaining the relevant NVQ will help you change from a Red Trained Operator card to a Blue Competent Operator card. We deliver both OSAT (On Site Assessment & Training) & EWPA (Experienced Worker Practical Assessment) NVQ’s to gain the CPCS 5 year blue competence card. You must have passed a CITB Health, Safety and Environment test within the last two years. Without this, you will not be permitted to take the CPCS Technical Tests, theory and practical.
