Nowadays there is a great demand for qualified heavy equipment
operators because of boom in the infrastructure, construction
and the mining industries. Most of the heavy equipments are used
in the industries mentioned above and there is an acute shortage
of qualified heavy equipment operators the world over and the
demand for the heavy equipment operators has outstripped the
supply. Therefore, a number of training schools have come up to
cater to the growing demand for heavy equipment operators.
The heavy equipment operator training schools are run by people
who have been in the industry for many decades and who are
competent enough to teach you all about the heavy equipment
operations. Basically the Heavy Equipment operator training
program is designed keeping your utmost safety in mind and they
are divided in two phases. One phase is known as the home study
phase and the other resident training phase.
The home study phase is very useful even for people who
currently hold a job and the material provided by the school can
be used as a reference guide. You can enhance your skills by
sitting in your home, thereby reducing the classroom attendance
by more than 50% and when you go onto the practical training
part, you can totally concentrate on the critical aspects of the
equipment operations rather than starting from the basics of
These courses are lucid, easy to read and to the point. These
courses are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the
Distance Education and Training Council, Washington, D.C.
The nature of work of a heavy equipment operator employed in the
construction and maintenance of various work sites by the
construction companies, contractors, public works departments
and lots of logging companies vary from industry to industry,
but the only thing common between all the operators is that they
operate the equipment by moving levers, pedals, and switches.
The Heavy equipment operator trainees have a variety of jobs to
choose from after the completion of the course, a list of which
is given below;
Apprentice asphalt plant operator, backhoe operator, bulldozer
operator, dredging, equipment operator, excavator operator,
grader operator, heavy equipment operator, loader operator,
paving equipment operator, side boom tractor operator, road
oiling truck driver, shovel operator, sewer flushing truck
operator, snow-removal equipment operator, apprentice pile
driver and a bridge worker. The working conditions are not so
good, you have to learn to work in mud, dirt and noisy
environments, almost around the year, but there are a few lucky
ones who operate in air-conditioned and dust free environments,
but then you are compensated by a handsome pay which is at least
20% above the average provincial salary. The heavy equipment
operators are mostly employed by the construction companies
which accounts for nearly 52% of operators employed and the rest
is contributed by the mining, gas, agriculture, fishing, logging
and the manufacturing industries.
One can progress to a supervisory or a managerial position in
due course of time with experience and skill sets to manage the
Heavy equipment operators.
