National Plant Operators Registration Scheme

NPORS was formed in the year 1992 to ensure plant operators are appropriately trained and assessed. It is accredited by the HSE as a competent organisation to train, test and certify operators.

National Plant Operators Registration Scheme

North West Services provide training for novices and experienced operators as well as refresher courses for operators looking to renew their cards. We deliver our courses from our purpose-built training facility in Ashton-in-Makerfield, near Wigan. Training is offered to the highest standards to ensure your operators become highly competent and fully qualified in plant operation. NPORS does offer the option of on-site training and testing at your premises if required. Certain site criteria must be met and if this is something you require contact us to discuss in more detail.

  • Just done my cpcs a17 telehandler training here for a week as a complete novice. Never stepped foot on a machine before so I was nervous but this company is excellent. I’ve never had a better trainer Richard and mike have changed my life and I will be forever thankfull. If you want a ticket and are prepared to put the work in don’t look anywhere else I feel confident going straight on site now I have learnt the right way. If I could give 10 stars I would.
