NVQ

NVQ

The most popular NVQ we offer, is “Plant Operations” which is required in order to upgrade a CPCS or NPORS Red Card to a Blue Card.

This involves a number of visits to your workplace to observe you in a working role on the specific piece(s) of plant

Tip: Aim to register and start your NVQ at least 6 months before your Red Card is due to expire.

Your NVQ will consist of 2 mandatory units, followed by a module corresponding to the category of plant that you require. For Example, if you had a CPCS or NPORS Red Card with 360 Excavator and Forward Tipping Dumper, you would do the units highlighted in bold below.

Mandatory Units

** Conforming to Productive Working Practices in the Workplace **

** Controlling, directing and guiding the operation of plant or machinery in the workplace **

Optional Units

Preparing and operating loader compressors to extract loose materials in the workplace

Preparing and operating lorry loaders or knuckle booms to lift and transfer loads in the workplace

** Preparing and operating forward tipping dumpers to receive, transport and discharge materials in the workplace **
