Cskills announce new category A17E Telescopic Handler

25th February 2016

CSkills have recently announced the addition of the new category A17E Telescopic Handler in 2016 to cover the lifting and transport of suspended loads with telehandlers. The new endorsement was launched on 4 January 2016.

The category has been bought in as a response to the growing confusion on a number of sites over using telehandlers with suspended loads.

Existing CPCS Telescopic Handler card holders will need to sit a theory and practical test to gain the A17E endorsement on their cards.
