Frequently asked questions
All of our assessors for this level 5 NVQ are highly experienced, qualified construction professionals who have either previously been, or are currently still operating as an Appointed Person themselves.
Having vast real-world experience in the role, our lifting assessors are in a position to provide relevant and useful advice and guidance that adds genuine value to your qualification.
Our fast-track route involves our assessor coming to site to conduct the assessment, ensuring that the qualification is achieved in the same day.
This route is particularly beneficial for those whose CPCS cards need urgent renewal or upgrade.
The fast-track route to achieve this Level 5 qualification is only available to established lift planners that are experienced and confident in their role.
The evidence collected demonstrates competence that has already been developed over time. This particular route therefore is not suitable for those who are still developing their abilities in this occupation.
The assessor will confirm that the candidate:

- Holds the red trained operator CPCS card.
- Has a further 6 months experience on-site.
Prior to registering for this qualification the assessor will require a manager in the workplace to act as an expert witness to confirm that the individual is competent in their role and confident in their abilities.

Once the NVQ has been successfully completed and verified off by the centre, we will request your NVQ certificate from the awarding body.
Generally the learner will have the certificate of achievement delivered to their home address within 10 days, this certificate can be used to upgrade the Red (trained operator) CPCS card to the Blue (competent operator) card.
If the CPCS card is required urgently, we have the facility to enable the candidate to apply for their CPCS blue card within 2 days of the successful assessment taking place. The candidate therefore does not need to wait for the certificate to arrive by post.
