Entry Requirements

Novices with no previous experience all the way up to highly experienced operators can attend the NPORS course. We offer two different routes to obtain the NPORS card. For the CSCS-approved Traditional NPORS card, all candidates need to have passed the Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) test or equivalent in the last 2 years.

If you would like to go through the NPORS Red / Blue Card Scheme, you will need to complete the touch screen test to gain your NPORS Red Card. You will then need to complete an NVQ in Plant Operations to gain your NPORS Blue Card.

What is the purpose of the NPORS Roller Course?

The course is designed to provide the operator with the knowledge to operate a Road Roller/Twin Roller safely and competently.
