As an employer there is a legal duty for you to ensure that your  employees are adequately trained to operate any piece of work equipment to a safe standard.


NPORS is a flexible way to maintain standards within your workforce. Assessments can take place with your machinery/equipment, on your site. This helps to keep down the cost down and limits days away from site. Alternatively this can be completed at a centre if you do not have the appropriate space or plant. 


Both Novice and experienced worker routes are available for a large variety of categories. These include:


Lift Trucks

Accessing equipment


Earthmoving machinery 

Street Works



Health and safety related courses 

Small Equipment 


NPORS cards with CSCS Logo 


Did you know that you can now apply for your NPORS card with the CSCS logo on. Please note that operators will have to supply proof of having passed the CITB Health, Safety & Environmental touch screen test within the two years prior to application for the card.


To convert your trained operator card (Valid for 2 years) to a competent operator card (valid for 5 years) you have to take the relevant (S)NVQ. A CPD record/log book will then need to be kept up to date with your  professional development and operating hours for your next renewal.

In- House Plant Training 

We can offer in house training and assessments for large plant suited to your companies individual needs. This can be completed on site or at a training centre. 

In-house training is a way of training employees to be competent on the machinery they are using on your sites. As an employer you have a duty  to ensure that all persons are provided with information, instruction, training and supervision to ensure the health and safety of employees (Health and Safety at work act 1974).

As 'Every employer shall ensure that all persons who use work equipment have received adequate training for purposes of health and safety,' (The provision and use of work equipment regulations 1998 - PUWER). Providing employees with in-house training will give the operator a certificate that can be used within your company and meet the PUWER guidelines.

In- house courses available for excavator, dumper, Telehandler, ride on roller, loading shovel, slinger signaller and many more.
