Our company can organise plant theory and technical tests with a minimum of stress to both candidate and customer. Please click on the relevant links below to obtain further information on the available categories..
Important Note: Anyone undertaking a theory and/or practical test must hold a current health and safety operatives test certificate (obtained within the last 2 years) If a health and safety operatives test is required, please apply online at www.cskills.org/supportbusiness/healthsafety/test or contact the booking line on 0344 994 4488. This test costs £17.50.
A plant operative test consists of two parts, a theory test and a technical (practical) test.
The theory test consists of a question and answer session which is done orally and is recorded. This theory test must be passed in order to continue to the technical test. If the theory test is failed then the candidate will have to arrange to resit the test at a future date. In this instance the technical test arranged will be forfeited with no refund and will be required to be rearranged. We strongly recommend that you revise for the theory test using the questions available through our link.
The technical (practical) test consists of the candidate undertaking specific manoeuvres and operations relating to the relevant machine. If the practical test is failed, training will be recommended to bring the candidate up to the required standard and a test can then be rebooked. We recommend you review the information available through our link so that the candidate is aware of the requirements during the technical test.
