CSkills announce new plant categories for CPCS Scheme; A17E TELEHANDLER – SUSPENDED LOADS

CSkills have recently announced the addition of the new category A17E Telescopic Handler in 2016. This course covers the lifting and transport of suspended loads with telehandlers.

Due to a number of sites over using telehandlers in this manner, the category has been bought in as a response to the growing confusion that operatives have had.

Consequently, existing CPCS Telehandler card holders will need to sit a theory and practical test to gain the A17E endorsement on their cards.

The new endorsement will be launched on 4 January 2016.

Please contact us at CISTC on 01252 855433 for further details.
