Plant Training - Training Courses
We offer the Equipment Operators Registration Scheme (EORS) for a wide range of plant and equipment. The scheme is aimed at those who are using plant on a regularly or adhoc basis, who are working for Local Authorities; Local Authority Contractors; Highway Contractors; Highways Agency or other similar organisations and is recognised by the Highways Agency and Local Authorities. EORS is not intended for those who are required to work on sites that are operated by the Major Contractors Group. For further details, there is a leaflet available for you to download from the Brochures menu option above.
