Currently CCNSG or CPCS Blue Cards are exemptions from the Core Day. From 1st January 2019, there will be no exemptions at all from the Core Day MPQC have decided.
This means that if you are forward planning for you, or your people to sit on future MPQC/SPA Courses, but only on the Quarry Day using NEBOSH, SMSTS, SSSTS, CCNSG or CPCS Blue Qualifications as your exemption for not sitting on the Core Day of the course, then you will need to book them on one of our courses prior to January 2019. As MPQC are altering the rules to remove all exemptions from the course.
In addition, for those already holding the Passport, it is vital you sit on a one day Renewal prior to the expiry date on your card or you will have to resit the two day course in full.
We apologise for any inconvenience, but the scheme rules are dictated to us by MPQC (Mineral Qualification Council) who set the rules for the qualification.
If you have any questions at all about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
