NPORS Fork Lift
National Plant Operators Registration Scheme NPORS Fork Lift
Overview of NPORS Fork Lift Training Course
NPORS Fork Lift is a qualification which is recognised by the HSE. This will show that an organisation has NPORS trained instructors who are fully competent to, therefore, train, test and certify operators. NPORS is an alternative to the CPCS scheme.
Companies may not have the facilities for on-site training in which an instructor would visit a site to deliver training so 3B Training distributes enquiries to a specialist company who will conduct the training at their base.
How long is the course?
The course length varies depending on the level of experience of the attendee
Who should attend the Fork Lift course?
NPORS training can be delivered to novices with no experience all the way up to experienced workers
Is the Fork Lift course accredited?
Experienced operatives attend an EWA (experienced worker assessment); by completing this will make the successful delegates viable for an NPORS card which is can be valid for either 3 or 5 years.
The main aim of NPORS is to grant NPORS accredited training providers the ability to meet the needs of the company and provide satisfactory personnel.
The course will provide the delegates with fully accredited NPORS training. Novices and experienced drivers attend the course. Delegates can learn on a range of models and makes of fork lifts as part of the practical element of the training.
