CPCS Blue Card

Thank you for choosing ACT Ltd to enquire about your NVQ. The below information endeavours to explain the NVQ service that we provide. It can seem like quite a complex process; however it really is straight forward.

Introduction to Apple Construction Trading Ltd

ACT Ltd provides exceptional training solutions in the construction industry. The company has grown through the outstanding service that we provide to all of our customers and we specialise in the Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) and NVQ in Plant Operations.

Health & Safety

As you would expect Health and Safety is taken very seriously at ACT Ltd and it is a strong element of all of our courses. Candidates will need to have passed the CITB Touchscreen Health and Safety Test before accessing any of our courses.

Where our assessors come out to visit you on your site please arrange a Health and Safety briefing. If you have any concerns or questions about Health and Safety, please contact us on 01295 770 789.

Blue Competence Card and the NVQ

It is best for candidates to register for an NVQ 12 – 18 months after completing the red cards tests. They can then begin collecting evidence for the NVQ straight away so there is no last minute rush.

Renewing your Blue Competence Card

After 5 years your blue card will expire and you will need to take the blue card renewal test or renew via one of the alternative routes. Please ask for more information.

Funding

Funding may be available to candidates who do not have an NVQ Level 2 or higher qualification already. ACT Ltd can arrange all the paperwork for you so that there is no cost to you for the qualification.

NVQ Route

ACT Ltd manages the OSAT NVQ process so it is as straight forward as possible. Most NVQs for Red Cardholders are completed as per the steps below.

  • Induction and Skillmatch
