The National Plant Operators Registration Scheme (NPORS operator card) was introduced in 1992. Since then it has become one of the UK’s leading accreditation and registration bodies. NPORS training courses are used across a vast range of sectors, including the Construction Industry, Utilities and Industrial.
Furthermore just like all of our services, NPORS training courses offer the most flexible and cost effective choice for our clients, without compromising on strict compliance or high standards.
Routes of Entry:
Different Routes of Entry for Operators into the NPORS Scheme.
Novice NPORS Training:
The Novice Training Course is for those learners who have no or limited experience in the activity or machine operation.
Novice NPORS training courses durations may be reduced due to experience or reduced training objectives.
Refresher Course – NPORS Training:
A refresher training course is 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 attended previous training courses. In either case a copy of the previous certificate must be presented.
Conversion NPORS Training:
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 case so to afford the candidate every opportunity to succeed.
The NPORS training provider can deliver a brief update on the theory element of the training course on the day but revision by the candidate is advised.
