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
