The E’s today are all about Excavators – moving on to Excavator 360 in our series of short blogs looking at the A to Z of courses we do.

Excavators need very little explanation, 360’s are most commonly found on construction sites.   We cover all aspects of training from Novice operators, candidates who need refresher training to experienced workers, just requiring an assessment.

Upon successful completion of the course the candidates will received a Kentra Training ID card (credit card size) detailing the course completed.

In addition, we have the option to register the training with our Awarding Body NPORS.   If your candidates are working offsite or on other peoples premises a recognised Awarding Body membership maybe advantageous. Prior to training we would apply to NPORS to register the course and upon successful completion of the course we would apply for the candidates 5 year membership with the NPORS scheme.
