Established in 1992, the National Plant Operators Registration Scheme (NPORS) 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 operates a two card system, one for construction related occupations which will carry the CSCS logo, and one for non-construction related occupations, which won’t. Plant Operators can now apply for their NPORS card to display the CSCS logo and as such will be recognised by the Major Contractors Groups (MCG) and National Contractors Federations (NCF) allowing operators to be accepted onto construction sites with NPORS accredited training.

As the preferred regulatory authority for workplace transport training NPORS offers employers a one stop shop for their training needs across a wide variety of industry sectors.
We can help companies from all different sectors with their training requirements who require accredited, nationally recognised qualifications for their staff or sub-contractors, whether this may be training for excavator operators, dump truck operators, telehandler drivers or indeed any other member of staff who operates plant as part of their day to day job role. (See a full list of our NPORS courses to the right of this page).
NPORS accredited training offers employers flexibility whilst maintaining standards, and very importantly offers employers a credible choice when deciding which card or certification they wish their employees to hold.
