General Construction

If you are working in construction there will generally be a requirement for you to hold a CSCS card indicating your trade.

These cards are obtained by passing the Health & Safety touch screen test and obtaining the relevant NVQ.

We hold approvals from CITB Cskills Awards and Lantra Awards for several Diploma (NVQ) qualifications relevant to groundworkers, fencers, plant operators, site supervisors and managers.

In addition to the qualifications listed here we offer a range of Health & Safety courses that are listed in the Helath & Safety section of the website.

By following the links opposite you will find full details of the qualifications and training programmes that we can offer.

highwayPlant Operator Training (NPORS)

We offer NPORS accredited or “in house” Plant Operator training along with the Diploma (NVQ) in Plant Operations.

The NPORS scheme is widely accepted throughout the construction industry although the CPCS scheme is preferred on some major sites.  We advise that you check with your client prior to booking training to ensure that either NPORS cards or In House certification are acceptable prior to booking as we are unable to offer the current CPCS operator tests.  The Diploma is a requirement of the CPCS scheme so although we can’t offer your CPCS tests we can still assist CPCS candidates in progressing to the Blue Card level.

Many of our Highways sector clients are happy with our in house courses as they are tailored towards their specific requirements although NPORS has gained approval from several client organisations and we know that NPORS are currently working hard to gain acceptance industry wide.
