    How old do you have to be and how much would it cost to do the training for the 3cx ?

  8. Siôn Jones


    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Do you have any previous experience on excavators? Or are you starting from scratch?

    There is no age discrimination for training, and no restrictions under the CPCS scheme as far as I am aware.

    I have sent you an email.

    Hi I’ve had a 180 3cx license before it ran out in 2005 but still use one on private looking for a refresher but not sure of costs..was hoping it would be cheaper if I already know how to operate one..plz advize costs.thx in advance

  19. Siôn Jones


    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Regarding a refresher course on the 180 excavator, how long do you think you’ll need to get back into the swing of things?

    Would one day theory revision, one day practical familiarisation and then CPCS test on 3rd day be sufficient do you think?
    Or even, one day theory and practical revision (combined) followed by the CPCS test on the 2nd day?

    I’ve sent you an email with a little more info.
    Thanks again,

    Hi, I live in London and am interested in JCB 3CX training. Could you inform price(s), location(s), detailed description of what is covered in the course or courses, and how long does the course(es) are for for?


  25. Edward

    Does a 3cx ticket cover a 2cx

  26. Siôn Jones

    Hi Eddie,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    The CPCS A12 category covers 180 excavators above and below 5 tonnes and therefore does cover the 2CX.

    However, as the 2cx comes in below 5 tonnes, you could always just go for the A10 category. Although this wouldn’t then cover the 3cx (above 5 tonnes).

    Hope that makes sense?

    All the best,

    Team ACOP

    Hi. Please can you tell me do we need training/licence for agricultural use, with road travel only on a JCB 3CX

  28. Siôn Jones

    Hi Janet,

    Thanks you very much for the enquiry.

    Regarding road travel specifically, this machine would be covered under a normal class B (car) UK driving licence.

    However, if you are operating the machine on your premises, regardless of industry i.e. agriculture/ construction. It’s the employers responsibility to ensure that the operator is trained/ qualified. I would therefore recommend some training or an experienced worker assessment (if suitably experienced) as proof of training/ competence.

    Hope this helps?

    Please get in touch if we can be can be of further assistance.

    Thanks again,

    Team ACOP
