CPCS A68 Plant Driving Course Aims

To provide thorough practical and theory plant training in Plant Driving. The A68 category is ideal for mechanics and fitters that are required to test a machine after servicing or repairs but do not carry out the operational work the machine was designed for.

By obtaining a CPCS card for category A68 they can demonstrate their competence in the safe operation of the plant machinery for a limited number of activities such as moving, operating the hydraulic controls (but not working with them) and working with the plant on slopes and over rough terrain.
