NPORS/CSCS Plant Operator Card

As a partner card scheme of CSCS, the NPORS/CSCS Operator Card will now be issued in line with the requirements stipulated by BUILD UK and will display the CSCS logo.  The NPORS/CSCS cards that are available:

Trained Operator Card (red) - This card remains valid for two years during which the operator completes the relevant NVQ for the categories held on their card.

Competent Operator Card (blue) - This card is only available to those operators who have achieved the relevant NVQ qualification for the categories held on their card.

Traditional NPORS Card

If the CSCS logo is not required on the NPORS Card, then the traditional NPORS card is also available. 

Upon successful completion of the training and assessment, the operator will receive a 5-year card, which is renewable.  This card can be endorsed with a Health, Safety & Environmental test, if the operator has passed the relevant test within the last 2 year period.  This card can still be awarded without the H,S&E logo, if the operator does not have this test.
