The Crane Supervisor (A62) category can be gained through successful completion of the CPCS Technical Test but is also added automatically on to the red CPCS card when card holders already hold the Slinger/Signaller (A40) and Appointed Person (A61) category.

Like the other categories held on a red card, Crane Supervisor has a two year validity and to progress in the scheme card holders are required to upgrade to the blue Competent Operator card by completing the relevant NVQ. However if the Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Controlling Lifting Operations- Planning Lifts (to convert the A61 category) is completed in full, card holders will only have to complete one unit of the Crane Supervisor qualification to upgrade the A62 category to blue- Unit QCF 531.
