CPCS A09 Forward Tipping Dumper Training

Tipping dumper

Are you considering a career in construction or looking to enhance your existing skills in plant operations? The CPCS A09 Forward Tipping Dumper Training is your gateway to success in this industry. In this blog, we’ll explore the key aspects of the training, its importance, and how it can benefit your career. 

Driving a forward tipping dumper is no different from driving a car; better still, most dumpers in use now operate on automatic gearboxes. It should however be noted that you DO NOT need a drivers’ licence to operate a dumper if you are not going to drive it on a public road. 

A CPCS Forward tipping dumper card shall certainly keep you busy and inevitably pay a good wage; the trick is to register with a good number of employment agencies .  

Understanding the CPCS A09 Forward Tipping Dumper Training 

CPCS, the Construction Plant Competence Scheme, provides industry-recognised certification for various construction plant. The CPCS A09-Forward Tipping Dumper course is designed to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to operate dumpers on site. 

On our CPCS A09 forward tipping dumper course, you shall have a mix of classroom-based training for the Theory part of your training; practical training on how to operate a dumper shall cover you for your practical CPCS test.  

Upon completion of your training, you shall take both a theory (verbally relayed) & a practical test (driving a dumper on a prescribed course).  

Upon passing your CPCS Forward Tipping dumper tests, a CPCS Trained Operator card (Red), valid for 2 years, shall be automatically generated.  

You shall need to complete a work-based Level 2 NVQ (Plant Operations) to change your Red  
CPCS Trained Operator card into a five-year (Blue) competent operator card.  

It is common practice for most people to book both the CPCS Dumper & Ride-on-Roller courses; most employers are looking to employ operatives that possess the two tickets.
