The demand for heavy equipment training in Virginia is growing and as more details of the federal stimulus program are released. Virginia is expecting to spend almost $700 million on transport infrastructure through the program with $118 million targeting state’s three urban metropolitan areas.
Transport infrastructure of course means roads and rail, areas that are labor intensive. Skilled operators for a variety of heavy equipment machinery will be required especially those that can operate a variety of machinery.
The highest demand will be bulldozer operators, front end loader operators and motor grader operators. Specialist operators will also be in demand to lay paving and to operate roller machinery. Entry level operators will find plenty of employment opportunities as bulldozer and loader operators.
Entry level operators will require formal training before employers even consider their applications. Those individuals who can complete their training now and build some operating hours will find employment even easier – skills and experience are always a big factor.
