Course Content

We provide courses for all levels of expertise from novice through to experienced operators.

CPCS separate the course into four categories:.

  • A17A – Industrial Telescopic Handler.
  • A17B – up to 9m.
  • A17C – above 9m excluding 360 slew.
  • A17D – all sizes including 360 slew.

Delegates need to have a current Health and Safety test pass and it must have been attended in the last two years. Once this is completed the delegate then can sit the practical and theory test. The delegate will first of all have a one to one discussion with a  tester and have to attain a mark of approximately 80%.

The delegate will then partake in the practical examination in which the delegate will have to follow instructions from a tester.

The course covers a range of health and safety regulations and procedures as well as the vital terminology that an operator needs to know. The course will also teach the attendee how to safely operate the telescopic handler in a range of scenarios.
