Not all infrastructure construction projects are the same. Here is a look at how there…
You may think that big cities are done with construction, however, in truth, big cities arguably have the biggest concentration of construction projects. In fact, you could argue that big cities spend as much time in destruction as they do in construction, especially those cities that are fairly old. Because there is a lot of construction (and destruction) work being carried out in large cities, the demand for heavy equipment operators is quite large.
I know there are many people who live in large cities who have brushed aside thoughts of a career in heavy equipment operations simply because they feel there is little to offer in their city. Cities are continually evolving, and the larger the city the more it evolves. Schools become too small and need to be demolished to make way for larger schools. The same can be said for hospitals, apartment blocks, office buildings and shopping malls.
This means there is a constant need for construction workers in cities, and this includes heavy equipment operators, crane operators and truck drivers, particularly dump truck drivers. If you live in a city and don’t feel there’s the need for heavy equipment operators, check the employment section of your city newspaper. You can also drop into our heavy equipment operator training school and talk to someone from our career services section – you’ll be surprised with how much work there really is in some big cities.
Careers in heavy equipment operations are very rewarding, especially those that involve the demolition of old buildings and the construction of new buildings. The pay rates are good, especially when you consider you only require three weeks of heavy equipment operator training. If you live in a big city, don’t brush aside a career in heavy equipment operations. Rather, take a closer look.
