Established in 1992, the National Plant Operators Registration Scheme is now one of the UK’s leading Accreditation and Registration Bodies, working across the Construction, Industrial, Utilities, Warehousing and Distribution, Agricultural, Ports and Marine sectors.
NPORS now offers a CSCS card. Much like the CPCS operator cards this type of card will require you to complete practical and theory tests after which you will be awarded a two year ‘red’ operator card. During the two years you must then register and complete an appropriate S/NVQ to be awarded a ‘blue’ Competent Operator Card which will then be valid for 5 years.
Before undertaking any CSCS NPORS practical or theory test you will need to have passed a Health & Safety touch screen test within the two years prior.
This is a record of training/assessment an individual has undertaken to prove their ability to safely operate or drive an item of plant machinery or equipment. Registration lasts for three or five years from the date of first initial test.
