California Requires Heavy Equipment Operators For 57 New Projects
California is leading the way when it comes to spending the federal economic stimulus packages. They have already put in place 57 projects which are expected to create 11,000 new jobs if 1% are for new heavy equipment operator positions, that equates to 110 new jobs.
In reality, the number of new positions created could be as high 5% or around 500 new heavy equipment operators. Given the demand on these skills from other states and from projects already commenced and you will have some understanding of the need to train new operators now, ready for the commencement of these projects.
It should also be understood that this is only the start. These are the projects approved to ready to start, there are more in the pipeline.
