CPCS and NPORS training and testing is conducted in accordance with published course objectives and learning outcomes. Testing can be completed at an approved local test centre or at a customers site (must meet the test criteria).  For CPCS tests there is a notification period of 3 days and for NPORS tests there is a notification period of 2 days.


If you require a CPCS Operators Card, the candidate needs to have passed a Health and Safety touch screen test before attempting the Theory Test.  Once the Theory Test has been completed the candidate needs to successfully complete a Practical Assessment.

Once the tests have been successfully completed the candidate will be issued an Operators Card.   This is a record of training/assessment an individual has undertaken to prove their ability to safely operate or drive an item of plant machinery. Candidates can upgrade their Operators Card to a Competent Operators Card by completing an NVQ Level 2 in Plant Operations.
