(A40) Training - Slinger Signaller Courses & Tests


The Construction Plant Competence Scheme ( CPCS) Slinger Signaller course is aimed at all operatives involved in slinging loads using plant machinery.

Slinger courses can also be known as "slinger banksman courses" in the context of this specific qualification, the banksman element relates to being in charge of the movement of plant machinery such as a tower crane, from the point of loading and unloading using safe systems of communication with the crane driver.

For those involved in traffic or vehicle marshalling operations and looking to undertake a vehicle banksman course this with be covered by CPCS A73 Vehicle/Plant Marshall.

Vehicle banksman courses ( in that context) train those who co-ordinate the movements of vehicle and/or workplace transport and oversee operations that could cause injuries or damage if not performed correctly. Slinger banksman courses and vehicle banksman courses give two very different qualifications, and it is essential that they are not confused.

The A40 Slinger Signaller training course is split into 5 separate qualifications. Each available as a separate course. These are:

  • A40A: Slinger Signaller for all machines , including pick and carry duties
  • A40B: Slinger Signaller for static cranes only
  • A40C: Slinger Signaller for Lorry Loaders only
  • A40D: Slinger Signaller for 360 Excavators only
  • A40E: Slinger Signaller for Telehandlers only

Delegates will need to choose which qualification of slinger banksman training to take based on the requirements of their current job role. There are both Foundation and Experienced Worker Slinger Signaller courses available for these qualifications: Experienced worker courses are only for operators with 2 or more years’ experience.

The most commonly scheduled courses are the A40 & A40B however, dedicated courses can be arranged for any specialist endorsements that you require.
