AT ATS Heavy Equipment Operator Schools we specialize in heavy equipment training through our training facility in Pelzer. We have been training heavy equipment operators across the nation for decades and stand ready to train new recruits as operators to help in the nations recovery process.
In South Carolina, there are almost $500 million being spent on infrastructure, under the federal recovery program. Under this program, roads and bridges will receive huge grants to enable their construction.
Bridges will be one of the major areas of construction with over $70 million already allocated to projects. This is one area where demand for heavy equipment operators will be felt most. Finding qualified and experienced operators for all the projects will be difficult. They will need to be dragged from existing project to handle some of the more technical aspects of bridge building.
This will leave large gaps in the construction industry around the state. It is hoped that by training new operators employers will be able to fill in the gaps left by recruitment of more experienced operators to bridge building.
Students of ATS are fortunate as our training covers a wide range of heavy equipment used in the field of construction. Graduates will be able to find work quite quickly as the more experienced operators move onto more difficult projects.
