The NPORS Forward Tipping Dumper course teaches delegates how to competently and safely carry out the operation of Forward Tipping Dumpers and to pass the relevant NPORS assessments.

Earn your NPORS Operator Card to enable you to operate a forward tipping dumper and demonstrate your competence to clients, employers and authorities.

Foundation or Experienced

We realise that you may already have experience with equipment and just need a qualification to support and prove your competency to potential employers and/or contractors. Some delegates may be completely new to construction or to a particular category of plant equipment.

We offer courses for both. If you’re experienced you can just take the test, or perhaps you’d like to have a day’s refresher training and a test, or you’d like to be taught from scratch. We have the course options for you.

If you’re unsure which course to take, speak to our team who can give you more details and help point you towards the course that suits you most.
