Routes of Entry:
Different Routes of Entry for Operators into the NPORS Plymouth Scheme.
Novice Training is for those learners who have no or limited experience in the activity or machine operation.
Novice course durations may be reduced due to experience or reduced training objectives.
Undertaken when a certificate is to be renewed or previous training is to be updated and the employer feels the operator will benefit from remedial tuition. Operators must hold a previous certificate or have had previous training. In either case, a copy of the previous certificate must be presented.
Undertaken when an operator is converting from one machine type to another eg. Converting from industrial Telescopic Handler (J5) to Rough Terrain Telescopic Handler (J3).
The operator must hold a certificate for the original category being converted.
Experience Worker Test (EWT)
Undertaken when the operator has demonstrated experience and their employer feels they do not require remedial tuition. However, this is often the case for practical operation but not so for the underpinning knowledge.
In reality, the theory element will require an element of tuition in most cases so to afford the candidate every opportunity to succeed.
The instructor can deliver a brief update on the theory element on the day but revision by the candidate is advised.
