NPORS accredited courses are HSE recognised qualifications for plant machinery operators.
An NPORS Accreditation shows that an organisation has trained instructors who can deliver quality training to operators. NPORS training will give you both the skills and the knowledge to safely operate your selected piece of plant machinery.
By completing the training, you will obtain your NPORS card. You will also have the skills to reduce the risks of machinery-related accidents on site.
The main reason someone would attend the NPORS course would be to gain the NPORS Card. You can use this card to show that you are suitable for the role of Plant operator for your chosen machine at your level (novice, experienced).
The qualification shows that you are skilful enough on your machine to conduct your work safely and, therefore, you will help reduce accidents on site. In addition, it shows to employers that you have an up to date knowledge of the industry standards, therefore creating progression opportunities for yourself.

Once you have gained your Red Trained Operator Card, you will also need to get the Blue Competent Operator Card. This card shows that you have the correct level of knowledge for your role. You will gain this by completing the relevant Plant Operation NVQ within two years of completing your NPORS course; this card is valid for five years.
