NPORS / CSCS Construction Plant Operator Card
Further to our recent announcement regarding the adopting of the CSCS logo onto the NPORS Construction Plant Operator Card we are now in a position to issue some basic information on how our new card system will operate in the construction sector.
Basic training and testing undertaken and Trained Operator Card issued valid for 2years fromdate of test. During this period the operator will be required to register for and achieve the (S)NVQ relevant to the categories held on their Trained Operator Card. Also the operator logbook will need to be completed and validated. Once achieved the operator can apply for the Competent Operator Card valid for 5 years from date of application
Existing NPORS Card Holders
Existing NPORS card holders will be given the opportunity to apply for a transitional card. If the operator does not hold the
relevant (S)NVQ for the categories held on their operator card they
will be issued with the Trained Operator Card valid for 2 years from date of application. They will be required to follow the same process as a new entrant. If the operator holds the relevant (S)NVQ for the categories held on their operator card they can
apply for the Competent Operator Card valid for 5 years from the date of application.
When will the new process begin?
For new entrants to the scheme the new process will begin on 1st October 2016 for notified training/ testing.
For TP’s who receive operator renewals you will receive an information leaflet advising on the course of action to take.
For existing card holders who are not due for card renewal we envisage that they can apply for atransitional card via www.npors.com from mid September.
We realise that this is just a very basic outline of the process and with that in mind further detailed information will be issued in due course.
