Straight to blue

This programme is aimed at individuals who are highly experienced in lift planning and wish to obtain their CPCS Blue card in the quickest and most cost effective way.

The package is also ideal for card holders who have allowed their CPCS Red card to expire over the 12 month grace period and would like to re-enter the scheme by obtaining the CPCS Blue card in the same category.

Delegates will be profiled by an assessor to deem them suitable for this route before a booking can be made.
