NPORS Plant Mover training course

This NPORS Plant Mover course is aimed at operators who won't be required to operate plant machinery to its full capacity. Training in the movement of plant machinery - non operational duties; these operators could include plant mechanics, plant machinery delivery drivers etc, who will only move machinery in the workplace, whether it be for maintenance/repair purposes or delivery/collection purposes.
