CPCS wheeled excavator training and testing.

We have a few exciting offers on wheeled excavator tests and courses here at ACOP on our new JCB Hydradig!

If you have the A59A CPCS tracked excavator ticket and have always fancied the A59B ‘rubber duck’ category, then we have a number of options to suit your needs:

  • Half day test only (30 mins familiarisation and CPCS test)
  • One day refresher (half day training and CPCS test in the afternoon)
  • Two or three day courses for intensive training followed by a practical test.

Lifting ops is included with every A59B test – for no additional cost (if requested).

Please get in touch to discuss your individual requirements on 01269 844155.

    Hi have had Rubberduck in past but let lapse have 360 10 above below am in Ireland on solas 360 which entitles me to Rubberduck which have been on for last year what would I need to do to put duck on my blue cpcs card please

  6. Siôn Jones

    Kevin, as you already hold a tracked excavator on a CPCS blue card. You would only be required to sit a practical test on the A59B wheeled excavator category, this would then go onto your exiting card (upon achievement). I have sent you some more info via email.
    Thanks,

    Hi I’m interested in a wheeled excavator course and lifting ops, I already have tracked excavator blue card. I have funding available to me from react (welsh government funding) and I’d like to know what dates you have a available for this course? And if you would accept React funding thanks

  11. Siôn Jones

    Jonathan,

    Yes we accept REACT. You can either email the paperwork (form 2) for us to complete or drop it off in person.

    If you could send me your CPCS reg. no, I’ll look to see what other categories will compliment your existing.

  35. Paddy Pits

    As you can see most of the questions here are the same how much does the rubber duct training cost, but that answer never seems to be on websites. Why can you not answer the question here so every one can see and save everybody’s time. For some reason it seems to be top secret.

  36. Siôn Jones

    Hi Paddy,

    It’s no secret, but instead depends on engaging with individuals so we can profile them correctly and offer a comprehensive quote. It is purely based on experience, other tickets held, linked categories and the need to add lifting ops.

    If you’d like a chat, please give us a call on 01269844155.

    Thanks again,

    Team ACOP

  39. David williams

    Hi I have tracked 360 10t above and below with lifting ops blue card. Want to add the rubber duck can I get a price and what is involved in the training please thanks

  40. Siôn Jones

    Hi David

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    We offer the CPCS A59B Wheeled Excavator Course, and it’s only the practical test that you will need to pass as you’ve already achieved the A59 theory.

    The practical test will have similar activities as your tracked test, but machine setup differs somewhat.

    The duration of the course will be dependent on your experience.

    I’ve sent you an email with some costs.

    Training takes place at our Centre in Carmarthenshire.

    Thanks again,

    Team ACOP

  41. Gary Midgley

    Not a problem, we have a JCB hydradig wheeled excavator on site for training.

    I’ve sent you an email with a little more info on costs and training options for the CPCS A59B wheeled endorsement.

    Thanks again,

    Sion (ACOP)

  43. Michael Brickley

    Hi,
    I’m looking to add the rubber duck to my Cpcs card. I’ve never driven one but I have been driving tracked excavators above 10tonne for over 20 years.
    Is it possible you could email me some prices on my requirements.
    Thanks
    Kind regards
    Michael

  44. Siôn Jones

    Hi Michael

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Do you hold the A59A 360 tracked excavator on your CPCS card already?

    If so, then it’s only the Practical test that you need to pass in order to add the Wheeled Excavator to your existing card.

    Some of our popular ‘conversion’ courses from tracked to wheeled excavators include a 1 day course with familiarisation in the morning and test in the afternoon OR a 2 day course with familiarisation the first day and tests on day 2.

    Also, your CITB HS&E operatives “touchscreen” test must be valid, i.e. completed within the last 2 years, prior to sitting any CPCS tests.

    I’ve sent an email with costs.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks again,

    Team ACOP
