Currently within our sector, one of the most popular tests at the moment is the Slinger/Signaller – All duties qualification. A lot of our clients are now asking for all duties qualified operatives. This is because static duties only allows operators to bank static machinery such as tower cranes whereas all duties allows the operators to bank tracked machinery and can be moved around site such as crawler cranes.

Operatives that we supply all work around tracked machinery such as crawler cranes and piling rigs which means it is essential for them to have all duties.

If you do not yet have this qualification then you can start by doing your CPCS Slinger / Signaller test to get your red card (however, if you do not have this card already you will also have to do a CITB Health, Safety and Environment for Operatives test).

If the course that you have done is static duties, to upgrade your red card Slinger / Signaller to all duties you will have to do the A40A. From then, you can do an NVQ which will turn your A40A all duties Red card into a Blue Card.

However, if you have a blue card which is static duties, you can undertake an A95 theory test in order to upgrade it to all duties.

This test, and many others are available across the UK, with a majority of them running 6 days a week. In addition to this we can offer discounted prices for group/multiple bookings.

Please bear in mind that prices may differ depending on location, type of test and the date.
