Take a look at any construction site in the country and chances are that you…
Excavators are one of the biggest pieces of heavy equipment that most people will get to use. They are similar in appearance to backhoes, but larger. They are usually tracked and are sometimes referred to as trackhoes, diggers or simply as hoes. They are used for a range of excavation functions including digging trenches, holes and foundations. They can perform many other operations beyond digging, and support a range of hydraulic attachments. Excavators can be used for demolition jobs, heavy lifting, river dredging, mining (especially open pit) and brush cutting. They are extremely versatile and are used in almost all types of building site. They come in a range of sizes to suit applications of different scales.
Here at Associated Training Services, we have a nationally accredited excavator training program. We have professional instructors that will take you through your excavator training, both in the classroom and on a simulated building site. The goal of our training program is more than just getting you certified, it is about getting you employed. For this reason, we have a job placement program that places graduates of Associated Training Services at different companies around the country. We recognize that not all schedules are equal and that some people do not have the time for full time training. This is why we offer both full time and part time training schedules. We aim to be as flexible as you need.
Getting certification for excavators makes sense. Operators of excavators earn a good wage, the training does not take very long and operating heavy equipment is much lighter work than some other jobs on the building site. It is something that you can be just as capable of doing at the beginning of your construction career as at the end. If you have any questions about excavator training or any other type of heavy equipment training, do not hesitate to contact us at Associated Training Services.
