NPORS Certification: NPORS is becoming a much more recognised certification. We were delighted to be awarded our NPORS accreditation last year. If you are an experienced slinger you will be able to undertake a 1 day theory and practical test without the need for training.
Testing can be delivered at our accredited training centre or at your premises as a dedicated 1 day course for up to 4 delegates.

NTSS/CTA Certificate: We offer our own, in-house training and certification programme. These courses offer the same high standards of training and testing as with our accredited courses for a slightly lower cost. These courses are especially helpful if a CPCS qualification is not essential and the operator work will be generally undertaken on your own site.
If you are an experienced Slinger you will be able to undertake a 1 day theory and practical test without the need for training. Testing can be delivered at our accredited training centre or at your premises as a dedicated course assuming you have the required plant.
