What is NPORS?

NPORS (National Plant Operators Registration Scheme) is the leading UK acrcreditation scheme for construction training. NPORS is a popular alternative to a CPCS scheme, offering the same accreditations upon completion with added flexibility. The main plus for NPORS is how cost effective the training can be in comparison to CPCS.

We currently have two training courses available:

 360 Excavator above & below 10 ton (tracked & wheeled) N202

Lifting operations with 360 & 180 excavators N100

We are flexible, training can be carried out at the candidates premises if preferable.

If the customer is supplying the equipment to be used it must meet current Health & Safety standards, have the relevant LOLER certification (if required) and manufacturers manual. The site must alos meet NPORS standards for training and testing.
