National Plant Operators Registration Scheme (NPORS)


The National Plant Operators Registration Scheme, or NPORS as it is more commonly known, is an excellent alternative card scheme to the CPCS.

Construction Training Assessments specialises in on-site training, bringing our qualified team to provide NPORS training services that suit your specific needs, experience level and working environment. Our goal is to ensure you leave with the right skills and knowledge needed to safely and efficiently work within the designated work sector.

Training facilities can be provided in Doncaster and Rotherham and will accommodate different plant machine types such as Loading Shovels, Forward and Rear tipping Dumpers, telescopic handlers, Excavators etc.

If you need any NPORS training or would like to put your workforce through it, please contact us and we will provide you with the information you need.


An NPORS card is much more flexible than other schemes, giving you the ability to:

  • Include attachments – E.g. Telescopic Handler – with Bucket attachment.
  • Restrict the card for Operational reasons – E.g. 180 Excavator – restricted to front bucket use only.
  • Restrict the card for Commercial reasons – E.g. Restricted for use on A Company Ltd sites only.
