360 lifting ops (A59C) explained

I’ve come across a fair bit of confusion resulting from the recent 360 lifting endorsement for excavator tests. Here’s some information to help clarify. New Blue Cards If the candidate has achieved a Theory and a Practical test for A58/A59 A and/or B then lifting operations can be added to the card providing Practical A59C is achieved. Existing Blue Card Holders with Technical Tests but prior to 09/07/12 Can be awarded Endorsement C on application. Existing Blue Card Holders (No Technical Test) Those that wish to add Endorsement C must also achieve the corresponding Theory Test. A97 – Excavator 360 below tonnes – Lifting Operations Theory Only A98 – Excavator 360 above 10 tonne – Lifting Operations Theory Only Existing Red Card Holders – Post Technical Test Can be awarded Endorsement C on application. Existing Red Card Holders – No Technical Test Those that wish to add Endorsement C must also achieve the corresponding CPCS Theory Test. They will also need to complete the Practical Lifting Operations element. A97 – Excavator 360 below tonnes – Lifting Operations Theory A97C – Excavator 360 below tonnes – Lifting Operations Practical A98 – Excavator 360 above 10 tonne – Lifting Operations Theory A98 – Excavator 360 above 10 tonne – Lifting Operations...
