Course Details

Product number: CPCS_A98_N|SW10080

To provide delegates with the knowledge and skills to safely operate Excavator 360 Above 10 Tonnes.

The current lifting activity within these categories has now been enhanced and offered as an endorsement to both the Excavator 360 below and above 10 tonnes. The test specification has been modularised to allow both the integration of the endorsement within the main examination, and as a stand-alone option for current cardholders.

If you are booking with less than 3 working days notice from the course start date please ring 0345 605 0006 to confirm this course.


The theory test for A58 & A 59 will incorporate the questions for the category and the lifting operations into one test. A separate theory test has been devised for existing cardholders wanting to add the lifting operations endorsement only.


This has been modularised into two parts, part one for excavation and extraction, and part two for plant equipment lifting operations. Lifting endorsements can be taken as a standalone test, if delegate already holds A58/A59.

Endorsement C is separate to A58/A59 A & B but to be awarded on a card, the delegate must also have achieved either A58/59 A and/or B practical.

Potential and existing operators who require the Lifting Operations module to add to their CPCS A59a or b ticket.


You must have a basic understanding and knowledge of current Health & Safety issues. The relevant CITB Health Safety & Environment touchscreen test must be current and in date (completed within the last 24 months).

Failure to arrive on the course with the relevant test completed and in date, will result in your not being permitted to undertake the exams at the end of the course. No refund will be given for exams cancelled as a result of you not having the relevant test completed.

More information can be found on the CITB website.

Your booking can only be confirmed once we receive the following information:

  1. Existing CSCS Card Number
  2. NI Number
  3. D.O.B.

One of our booking agents will be in contact with you 24-48 hours after you make your booking to collect this information prior to confirming your space on the course.

On successful completion of the Theory or Practical tests the delegate is awarded the upgrade to their Red Trained Operators Card or Blue Competent Operators Card.

Trained Operator Card (RED)

The Trained Operator Card confirms a level of core skills, knowledge and understanding that can be applied in the workplace until measured as competent against national standards. Experienced and able operators may hold a Trained Operator Card whilst being measured against national standards through an SVQ or NVQ.

Once you've obtained your Red CPCS Trained Operator Card, it will last for 2 years. During these 2 years you must work towards and achieve your NVQ in Plant Operations to upgrade to a Blue CPCS Competence Card.

Competent Operator Card (BLUE)

The Competent Operator Card tells the observer that the holder has demonstrated a level of health and safety awareness through the CITB Health, safety and environment test, underpinning knowledge previously through a CPCS theory test, operating ability previously through a CPCS practical test and operating competence on the type of plant (evidenced by an SVQ or NVQ or employer confirmation of competence).
