Suspended loads telehandler training – ACOP meets high demand


We have seen a surge in tests for the new CPCS A17E (suspended loads) category. This category is for existing telehandler card holders that work with hook attachments and travel with suspended loads.

The CPCS technical test involves a shortened theory test. You can find the questions here (Word doc). The questions relating to the lift chart are now a mandatory section.

There is also a practical test which involves lifting a variety of loads with a hook attachment and working alongside a slinger/ signaller.

Other training categories are available, including questions.

If you would like some more information on training or to book a test, please get in touch.

    I’ve emailed you with costs for a 1 day A17E course. We offer some training/ familiarisation in the morning and CPCS technical test in the afternoon. There is a shortened theory and practical test to complete – but you won’t need to sit the whole test again.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions?

    Thanks again,
