Bulldozer training is one of the most important things you can do for your career. If you want a long and successful career as a heavy equipment operator, then the bulldozer is one of the essential pieces of machinery to learn how to handle.
So what do you learn in bulldozer training?
10 Types of Equipment You’ll Learn to Operate
At ATS Heavy Equipment School, we take training on all types of heavy equipment real seriously. That’s why we incorporate training for all of these pieces of machinery into the bulldozer training we offer:
- Bulldozers (obviously)
- Front End Loaders
- Skid Steer Loaders
- Wheel Loaders
- All-Terrain Forklifts
- Off-Road Haul Trucks
When you graduate our bulldozer training classes, you’ll be fully versed in how to operate each piece of equipment, and that includes the proper safety procedures for operations on the work site.
You’ll Also Learn the Basic Operations of Work Site Maintenance
Of course, there is a lot more to handling heavy equipment than simply maneuvering and safety. On the work site, you’ll need to understand a few other things in order to be effective in bulldozer operations. Our instructors will also teach you:
- How to read grades
- Identifying soil
- Determining work site layout
- Worksite safety procedures
- Heavy equipment maintenance
- Laser levels
These skills will come in handy when and if you ever advance to management or take on a supervisory role on the work site (and we hope you do). With these skills, you’ll learn to operate and grow to become a productive contributor to any heavy equipment work site.
