Guidance for NPORS / CSCS Operator Card Holders

Further to guidance already issued regarding the NPORS / CSCS operator card we would like to update all card holders with the latest developments from NPORS. We are very aware that due to the closure of the HS&E test centres card holders will be unable to take these tests and therefore will not be able to extend their Red Trained Operator Cards or renew their Blue Competent Operator Cards.

NPORS has taken the decision to extend the registration period of those cards due to expire for 6 months at no cost to the card holder or employer. We feel that in these extraordinary times this is a reasonable course of action to take. We won’t be issuing replacement cards in the first instance but if you require a card please let us know and one will be issued also free of charge. Though the registration date printed on your current card will show as expired, your registration information can be verified via our online card checker and QR code on the cards.

How to Apply

Please contact NPORS on 01606 351240 where you will be asked to verify your details. Once this is done the registration extension can be applied to your operator record.

If you have any concerns or would like to discuss the impact on your centre or learners please contact us on info@npors.com or 01606 351240.
