We were a founder member on NPORS back in 1992 and it’s something we are very proud of.
Training and testing can be tailored to your exact requirements. For example: If you only use an Excavator in a yard to load from a stockpile, your card can be limited to just that – saving you time and money on training for excavating into the ground.
A Traditional NPORS card lasts for 3 or 5 years, depending on category.
In 2016, NPORS introduced a new “CSCS” version of their card. This card comes with a CSCS logo embossed and is accept on all BUILD UK construction sites.
Following a successful test (either experienced or following training), successful candidates will receive a 2 Year Training Operator (Red) Card.
Within the 2 year lifespan of your Red Card, you will be required to upgrade to a 5 Year Competent Operator (Blue) card. To do this you must complete an NVQ for the relevant unit of plant. A very similar structure to CPCS.
