Training Guidance

Our Training guidance below, will allow you to self-assess the required number of years’ experience we recommend you hold before booking onto a course, and will also help you gauge whether you need 1, 2 or 4+ days training on your selected category. If you have limited or no experience on the category of plant required ACT Ltd can offer training on any of the approved categories below. If you already have two years’ experience and are completing a NPORS or CPCS course, then you have the option of taking the test only route, however we always advise you have some form of training, whether this is a day’s refresher, covering theory & practical training, or, whether this is a half- day session covering theory training only.

We are happy to discuss your needs and quote on the best options available for your specific requirements and budget.
