This is an entry-level program for individuals who want to learn how to safely operate heavy equipment in a variety of industrial settings.

The program enables you to enter the workforce with all the safety training required in this field. The theory component is designed to deliver a comprehensive understanding of equipment maintenance, heavy equipment system operations and proper site management, emphasizing the importance of quality and safety in these areas.

The practical component is focused on operating techniques and practices and is conducted in an actual construction site atmosphere. It includes the operation of a minimum of four pieces of equipment, including excavators, backhoes, front-end loaders and bulldozers. The program concludes with a work term, where you complete your training in an industry workplace.

Field experience (work placement) is a mandatory credit course completed at the end of your program. It provides you with the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills outside of the classroom. Opportunities are typically unpaid and last approximately 5 weeks.
