Aims & Objectives 

The 180 Excavator Training Course is designed to offer candidates the fundamental knowledge and practical skills to operate a 180 Excavator to NPORS standards. (National Plant Operators Scheme).


All NPORS tests and training can be delivered at your site or at our purpose built training centre in Fife, Scotland.

Who Should Attend

Anyone who needs to operate a 180 Excavator.

Course Duration

A 1 day ‘test only’ can be carried out on candidates with relevant experience.

Training duration is dependent on the number of candidates, and each candidates previous experience.  Generally a novice candidate would require 10 days training on the 180 Excavator (this is based on 3 candidates with little or no experience) however this can be significantly reduced with relevant experience.


On successful completion of the course the candidates will receive an NPORS Trained Operators Card(National Plant Operators Registration Scheme). For more info on the scheme, please visit our NPORS page.
