The CITB Customer Promises have been developed from feedback to reflect what is important to you, the customer. They make a clear commitment from the whole team at CITB about the standards you can expect from the team.

They will guide the future service delivery, and provide an additional tool which can be use for continuous measurement and improvement.

The feedback customers have given shows they want a consistent approach and to get the same information from everyone at CITB. They are working on improvements to achieve this and so our Customer Promises are for the whole of CITB.

CITB will keep pushing to seek your feedback on all areas of performance against the promises, and deliver further customer focused improvements wherever necessary.



Bespoke training for groups can be arranged at your place of work direct with us. Contact Mike 0800 193 0977 to discuss your requirements.

Plant Operator Cards

CSR Plant Operator cards cover a wide range of construction plant and equipment.

NPORS CSCS Plant Operator Card

As a partner card scheme of CSCS, the NPORS CSCS Construction Operators Card, will now be issued in line with the requirements stipulated by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) and will display the CSCS logo.

The NPORS CSCS Cards that available are the Trained Operator Card (Red), and the Competent Operator Card (blue). The Blue Competent Operator card is only available to those operators who have achieved the relevant NVQ qualification 

For new entrants to the scheme that have no formal qualifications, a Red Trained Operator Card will be issued which remains valid for two years, during which time the plant operator must achieve the relevant NVQ qualification for the categories held on their Trained Operator Card.

Traditional NPORS Card

If the CSCS logo is not required on your NPORS card, the option to apply for the Traditional NPORS card is still available.

Once the training and assessment has successfully been completed the operator will receive a 5 year traditional NPORS card, which is renewable. This card can be endorsed with the Health, Safety & Environment (HS&E) test logo, if the operator has passed the relevant HS&E test within the last two years. If they don’t have a valid HS&E test, then the card will be awarded without the HS&E logo.

It doesn’t matter where you are in your career, whether it is the 1st step or the 40th, we have training that can cater for you.

Red Card – Trained Operator

All candidates are required to complete the CSR 1 Day Health & Safety Training. All candidates are also required to complete the Construction Awards Alliance (CAA) Plant Award/Certificate. A profiling exercise is completed by the Training Provider to determine prior experience and ability and to assess whether the candidate requires training. If training is required the CSR Training Provider will deliver the necessary training.

Renewal Requirement 

Red Trained Operator cards cannot be renewed. This is to ensure the progression towards a Blue ‘Plant Operator’ card within 3 years.
