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 3 days training based on 5 candidates with little to no experience, however this can be significantly reduced with relevant experience


Our construction plant courses can be delivered with either NPORS, CPCS or our own in-house accreditation. On successful completion of the course candidates will therefore receive certification per their preference. For further information on these schemes, please click here.
