After successful completion of the CPCS Technical Test candidates are issued with the Red Trained Operator Card. The red card lasts for just 2 years and in this time card holders are required to undertake the relevant NVQ to upgrade to the Blue Comptent Operator card. Blue cards have a 5 year validity. Although it is a mandatory part of the CPCS scheme the NVQ is a stand alone qualification awarded by the Construction Awards Alliance which endorses competence in the workplace.
