NPORS - National Plant Operators Register Scheme

The NPORS National Plant Operators Registration Scheme has now become one of the UK’s leading construction plant card schemes working across the Construction, Industrial, Utilities, Warehousing and Distribution, Agricultural, Ports and Marine sectors.

NPORS offers flexibility whilst maintaining standards both nationally and internationally by working closely with industry and Accredited Training Providers. The scheme offers accredited training much like CPCS and also offers registration and verification.

The NPORS scheme has now become a Build UK (formally UKCG) ‘accepted record scheme’, meaning that it is recognised as being equivalent to CPCS.
NPORS cards can also be CSCS embossed at request in the same way that CPCS cards are. This was done as part of a drive to bring all card schemes under a ‘one logo’ policy, making employers able to easily validate schemes and cards.

All NPORS training and assessments can be delivered at the client’s location enabling the training in an environment candidate feel comfortable in, this of course has the benefit of reducing downtime on site as candidates aren’t having to be released for examination purposes as they may need to with the CPCS alternative. We can also complete the training at our NPORS plant training facilities in Northamptonshire/Bedfordshire borders. We have an unrivalled spectrum of courses/categories under the NPORS accreditation and cover the whole of the UK.

What routes can I take under NPORS? 

Traditional NPORS Route:
The NPORS traditional route is aimed for candidates that do not require a CSCS logo card. This will include a number of days training and then a theory and practical test. However, if you have the right experience, you may have the option of just completing the NPORS test only. When you have successfully completed the NPORS test, you will be entitled to the NPORS 5 year card. 

NPORS CSCS Red Card Route:
To gain a NPORS CSCS Card you will have to undertake training and a test on the relevant machine you have chosen to use. This will include a number of days training and then a theory and practical test. However, if you have the right experience, you may have the option of just completing the NPORS test only. When you have successfully passed your test, you will be entitled to the NPORS CSCS card which is valid for 2 years. 

NPORS CSCS Blue Card Route:
The NPORS CSCS Blue Card is the next step that you must take after completing your NPORS CSCS Red Card. The Red card is valid for 2 years, we recommend that you progress onto the Blue card route around the 18-month mark. (6 months before expiry) The NPORS Blue card is an NVQ process that will be completed on the site you are working on using the machine. Whilst on site the assessor with build a portfolio gathering evidence of you using the machine through Photographs, Videos and a professional discussion that will look at your experience using the machine.
Once completed the portfolio will be sent to be verified, once this has been completed you will be entitled to the 5 year NPORS CSCS Blue card. Need to know how to keep your 5 year card from expiry, give us a call!
