Appointed Person Course (CPCS A61)

Course introduction

Appointed Person Course – BAM Construction Training’s CPCS A61 Appointed Person course (5 day foundation) is designed to provide managers, supervisors, or anybody with the day-to-day responsibility for planning lifting operations, with sufficient knowledge on how to safely plan a lifting operation so that they can competently and safely carry out the role as an Appointed Person and pass the CPCS theory/practical assessments. The course includes comprehensive training on planning lifts, interpreting and applying sections 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the BS 7121 Safe Use of Cranes, and understanding of LOLER Regulations.
