Gaining you MPQC Operator Route to Competence – Here’s How!

Do you work within the Extractives/Mineral Processing industry and are you looking to ensure your operators are trained to the highest and most efficient standard possible? We can help!

Did you know that we support equipment operators through their journey from initial training right through to operational assessment?

Working with MPQC
We have been working closely with MPQC (and its predecessors EPIC and EMP) for over 19 years to offer a comprehensive range of plant operator training courses as an accredited assessment centre. After establishing and growing our relationship with MPQC, we now offer over a full route to competence which allows us to deliver the operator equipment training, along with the relevant NQV to allow delegates to achieve their Blue Competent Operator card. But how does it work?

How the Competency Scheme Works

We support operators through their complete journey from training to assessment as shown above. Once the operator has achieved their Red Assessed Operator card and completed the training, we induct them on a sector-specific qualification. Our expert assessors then work with each delegate to build their portfolio. Upon completion of their qualification the Blue Competent Operators Card will then be awarded.

Our vocational qualification team have worked hard to ensure we have a full spectrum of qualifications to ensure that every delegate in enrolled on the most relevant and applicable pathway for their job, allowing them to achieve as much as they can from us!

Going Digital
In March 2020, we altered the way we work to provide a new electronic portfolio system as a way of efficiently monitoring all candidate progression for those completing their NVQ.

The portfolio system is available for all MPQC qualifications from L2 – L7 as a way to provide true visibility throughout the learner journey. It allows evidence to be easily uploaded and matched to the current MPQC standards.

Rich Billing, Operation Manager explains - “I have worked in the extractives and mineral processing industry for over 27 years and have been an MPQC approved assessor in many environments from blasting quarries to road building for over 15 years. It was clear that there was an opportunity to evolve our services at Certora and provide a more efficient and effective programme for our learners”.
Managers and Supervisors will be able to see the progression against the expected completion date and view assessor visits and schedules so they can provide further support for their employees on their route to competence and view any required information at the touch of a button!
