Grader Course
Heavy Equipment Operator Course

Grader Course - 3 weeks - $6,500

Course Description

Learn the safe and effective operation of the Grader.

Throughout the 3 weeks of training, students will receive 50 hours of machine operation shifts as well as online instructional theory using educational standard software, Moodle, plus take part each day in live online meetings with instructors and students utilizing Microsoft TEAMS. It is important for students to consider bringing their own current laptop computer or tablet to access this training. Those that do not have access to current devices are able to schedule time in our student computer lab for study. Four basic safety tickets (WHMIS, CSTS, GD2 and First Aid) are included in tuition, with additional safety ticket training available for a fee. As students progress through the field portion of the course, the tasks required on the machines become more involved and challenging to ensure that they have the required skills to operate the machine in a real work situation.
