Gain the skills and qualifications needed to work as a PLANT Operative on a construction site!
This course is for adults looking to start their journey into construction, by becoming a PLANT Operative. You don’t need any existing qualifications in construction to complete the course.
On this course, you will have the opportunity to gain a CSCS Green Card ( to be able to work on Site), which will increase your chances of gaining employment within the construction industry – with many construction companies only looking to hire people with a CSCS card.

You will participate in activities to develop skills in communication, teamwork and problem solving to ensure effective and safe working practices, as well a building rapport with those you work with.
Once you have passed all the above you will then be trained by one of our excellent PLANT Tutors on the following ticket:

The awarding body will either be NPORS or CPCS which are both the most highly regarded standards within the Construction Industry.
