How much actual real-world training did you get when you did your tracks or wheels endorsement? Not much, right? Excavators are versatile and capable piece of equipment, but there's so much to learn that often it's difficult to get a job unless you already have experience and skills. This is where this course helps you: it will teach you tips and tricks from experienced excavator operators that will help you be more efficient and useful to an employer.
This is the perfect course for:
Also included are modules that explain civil construction worksites, hazard management, health and safety in the workplace, site communications and more - in short, you're going to learn what you need to know to be a safe, useful member of the team on a worksite and don't put your colleagues in danger.
This course is delivered online.
The course is divided into easy-to-follow modules that take just a few minutes each.
At the end of this course, you'll get an operator's certificate, as long as you take a practical assessment. This shows that you have completed the theory and have passed a practical assessment.
It's an effective way to become a safe, diligent and skilled machine operator and a valuable team member on a site.
Do I need any unit standards to operate heavy machinery like dump trucks, loaders, graders and excavators? No, there's nothing in any law that says you have to do this UNLESS you are driving them on NZTA's definition of a road. In this case it will be a wheels (W), tracks (T) or rollers (R) endorsement that is required.
Does this course comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015? The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 requires that you provide ongoing training, information, monitoring and supervision. This course covers training and information that is essential for machine operators and drivers to know.
Does the course material support people with learning challenges such as dyslexia or reading difficulties? Online learning is more in-depth, more inclusive with our translations and audio recordings, and can be repeated as many times as is necessary to gain understanding.
My machine operators have a W, T or R endorsement. Is this course still needed? Yes. The endorsement courses cover only the basics of operating those machines on a road, not safe practices on a worksite.
I have a new driver who hasn't operated these machines before. Can they use this course to become qualified? They can use this course to learn the theory, but it is essential that they also have in-person practical training plus supervision. If they are driving on the road with any earthmoving machines, they may need the relevant endorsement on their driver licence, plus the correct type of licence for the weight of the vehicle.
What machines does this course cover? This course covers excavators of all sizes from mini excavators and backhoes to the largest mining equipment
How long is the certificate valid? The course should be refreshed every 3 years, to align with guidelines for operating heavy plant.
How do you prove that a person has done the training when it's online? We recommend that your operators do the training at your premises (either on your computers or tablets or using their smartphone) so that you can ensure it is them doing the training and not another person. Our clients tend to schedule convenient, short sessions where an operator can use those facilities.
You get access to the course for a full 6 months which means your operator can take a couple of months to finish the modules and can come back to it as a refresher anytime until the course access expires - this is great if you need to do any remedial work with them.
Set up is free whether you are purchasing one course licence or a hundred course licences.
