NPORS Telehandler training
EAGLE PLATFORMS NPORS COURSE
The NPORS telehandler training course offered by Eagle Platforms is recognized nationwide as an industry standard programme that trains delegates in being able to demonstrate safe operation of telehandlers on site, from driving, parking and lifting through to safe turning, retrieval and lowering of loads and hazard awareness. Depending on the experience of the delegate it will take 1-5 days to complete the course.
WHY GET TELEHANDLER TRAINING?
Anyone wishing to embark on a career in construction and looking to work on sites in the UK must be able to demonstrate the ability to safely and competently work using telehandlers. Employers have strict regulations to comply with and as they look to reduce liability they increasingly look towards operators who hold the relevant qualifications and cards.
WHAT IS NPORS?
Standing for National Plant Operators Recognition Scheme, the NPORS is one of the UK’s leading accreditation and registration bodies
