Traffic Marshall Course / Banksman Training - EM Training's CPCS A73 Plant and Vehicle Marshaller training course is designed to provide novice and intermediate operators with sufficient vehicle marshaller training which will enable them to competently and safely carry out the role as a plant and vehicle marshaller and pass the CPCS theory/practical assessments.

Our CPCS A73 Traffic Marshal course is run over two days (usually on weekends), to ensure that our candidates have ample time in between the first day and second day of training/testing (normally 6 days in between training & testing) to prepare for the theory and practical CPCS A73 tests; the staggering of training days has seen our candidates achieve a pass rate of over 95%!
