The main purpose of NPORS is to grant NPORS accredited training providers the ability to meet the needs of the company and provide suitable personnel.
The course teaches our delegates how to operate the excavator safely and how they should carry out various safety checks/procedures on the machine. They are also taught how to understand the capabilities, functions and and all safety aspects of each machine, They must show a good understanding of all the instructions implemented by level pegs and profiles, they will also work to levels with the aid of laser equipment.
The awarding body recommends that refreshers are taken regularly, to make sure that all operators are working to correcting standards and to correct any bad habits the operator may have picked up over the cards duration.
