Training Courses > Excavator - LE

General Information

The course is designed to train participants up to the OH&S Competency Standards required for operators of loadshifting equipment.

Generally the most sought after and recognized licence by not only operators wishing to enter the industry, but also by most earthmoving/construction employers.

The skills obtained in the proficient use of this machine allow the operator to readily adjust to most other types of earthmoving equipment. We suggest this type of machine to those endeavouring to obtain a skill that may provide easier and extended periods of employment within the industry. This is definitely the licence for the astute, would-be operator.
