NPORS stands for the National Plant Operators Registration Scheme and is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading plant training schemes.  It is, perhaps, lesser well known than the CPCS card scheme, but NPORS training and testing has been improving over the years and is now favoured by many construction companies.  It is also accepted by BuildUK, who lead the UK construction industry.

NPORS training is much more flexible, with training being able to be delivered on site and not just at a training centre.  The scheme has also now aligned itself with CSCS so that the training cards can be embossed with the CSCS logo when operatives have taken and passed the correct HS&E test.

Furthermore, NPORS now offer plant operators the opportunity to progress their skills and competency by providing Trained Operator and Experienced Operator cards, depending on operators level of experience. These can be achieved via an NVQ.

Cards Available NPORS Traditional card (5 year validity) ​

NPORS Red Trained Operator card – CSCS Embossed (2 year validity)

​NPORS Blue Competent Operator card – CSCS Embossed (5 year validity) ​*restrictions available upon request (site/contractor specific)
