Training can be carried out at our centre in Fife, or at your own site where criteria be met. CPCS testing must be carried out at our approved test centre in Fife however NPORS testing can be carried out at your own site providing site specifications can be met.

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 2 days training on the 4X4 (this is based on 3 candidates with little or no experience) however this could be 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.
