During the period of your Red Trained Operator Card for two years, which is non-renewable, you need to undertake your relevant NVQ to upgrade your membership to the Blue Competent Operator Card.

NVQs are achieved in your respective field of expertise and demonstrate your skill and in-depth knowledge of all the CPCS standards along with your experience. In order to obtain a NVQ, you need a proof of your professional experience and skill.

We offer a variety of CPCS services and are also offering the corresponding NVQ for you to complete the whole process with ease. To view a full list of NVQ categories, please navigate to the ‘NVQS’ link above.

After completing the NVQ, you can obtain the Blue Competent Operator Card which has a validity of 5 years and can be renewed through a proper assessment process.
