After the initial reduction in work due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the signs are that the construction industry is slowly but surely returning to work. To meet our customers’ needs, we are bringing more staff back from their furlough and look forward to a time when we are back to full strength again. Let’s hope it won’t be too long.

Coronavirus update

Coronavirus

Coronavirus

Camfaud is still open for business. However, we are currently operating with a skeleton staff due to the Coronavirus restrictions and our reduced workload. We are accepting bookings and carrying out work for our customers but, because many of our staff are now working remotely, our response times may be somewhat slower than usual. Please bear with us.

Camfaud Concrete Pumps Training School

Mobile boom pump training

Mobile boom pump training

Camfaud operates the largest concrete pump training school in the country. The school is used to train both Camfaud employees and external personnel.

We have a number of trainers and Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) testers who teach candidates the knowledge and skills required to be safe, competent concrete pump operators and test them to CPCS standards.

We train and test operators for all three CPCS categories: A06 Concrete Pump – Truck Mounted Boom, A44 Concrete Pump Trailer Mounted and A72 Static Concrete Placing Boom. Please note that an LGV licence must be held to obtain the A06 truck mounted boom pump card.

Training is carried out in our training schools in St Helens and Epping and also at the candidates’ sites.
