The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) have announced that NOCN has been selected as preferred bidder for the CPCS scheme.

CITB has been divesting its card schemes to other suitable providers, such as the Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS Scheme), as part of its ‘Vision 2020’ programme of reform. The process is currently in negotiations between CITB and NOCN and if the sale to NOCN progresses as planned, NOCN has proposed the creation of an independent subsidiary as part of their overall approach to the purchase and delivery of the CPCS scheme.

It’s said that CITB will remain the CPCS card scheme provider and the CPCS scheme will continue to operate as normal.
