About the Logbook

The role of the Logbook is to record life-long learning and evidence towards the renewal of a Competent Operator (Blue) card.

The use of the Logbook is voluntary and the cheapest option to use of renewing a Competent Operator card;  however it is only one route to providing on-going operating experience at the point of renewal.

CPCS recommends that the Logbook is used to keep a record of all the operating activities, testing, training and employment that the individual undertakes.

A Logbook is automatically sent out once the individual’s first Competent Operator (Blue) card is issued.  The Logbook is sent to the individual's home address.

If you renew your Competent Operator (Blue) card using the logbook route, then you should have the Logbook validated prior to submission of your application.  This would be performed by a company-approved Validator.  They will review the Logbook prior to completing the Independent Declaration section of the Application to Renew a CPCS Competent Operator Card F1/3.

How to Complete your Logbook:

The Logbook is divided into five sections with the first four sections providing records for different aspects of the individual’s career to be logged and endorsed:

  • Section 1: Operating Experience Record - endorsed by Supervisor
  • Section 2: Testing Record                         - endorsed by CPCS Tester
  • Section 3: Training Record                        - endorsed by Trainer
  • Section 4: Employment Record                 - endorsed by Employer
  • Section 5: Further information

If you wish to use the Logbook to prove on-going operating experience at the point of renewal, the following steps must be followed:

  • Record your operating
  • Entries must be endorsement.
  • Minimum of 300 hours should be recorded for each category (pro-rata)
  • Validated by a company approved Validator prior to Renewal application being submitted.
