eLearning for Waste Management Awareness

Available this summer, Certora’s waste management experts have created a suite of Waste Management Awareness eModules. Ideal as a preparation course for anyone who is due to take their Continuing Competence Test. More courses will be added throughout 2024 to further support those who may not be familiar with waste management but are seeing the processes on their site evolve.

MPQC Plant Operator Competency Scheme

Did you know that the MPQC Plant Operator Competency Scheme was updated at the beginning of 2023 and the red and blue operator card statuses changed?

Operators no longer receive a Red or Blue MPQC Card. Instead, they are awarded an MP Awards Plant Operator Card that will provide access to a digital profile where operators will be listed as an Assessed Operator (completed their operational assessment) or a Competent Operator (completed their operational assessment and a relevant VQ.

To better support our customers, we created a short video starring our Customer Relationship Manager, Tanya Raybould, who explains the scheme for those businesses who choose this route to demonstrate competency of their mobile plant operators.
