What to Expect When You Join a Heavy Equipment Training Class
- An Intensive Experience
Make no mistake, you will be working to graduate from our Heavy Equipment Programs. Our courses are intensive, all-day affairs that last for several weeks. We want to ensure we graduate the best, and that is why major companies from across North America have hired our graduates.
- Structured Real-World Exercises
At 5th Wheel, we want to ensure you’re ready for the reality of heavy machinery work. Our extensive training facilities are set up to mimic real-world situations, giving you direct hands-on experience. We have far more than the corner of someone else’s quarry for you to learn in.
- Multiple Types of Machinery
One of the real benefits of a commercial-class license is the wide variety of machines you can potentially operate. We want you to get experience with as many of those as you can, even machines you might not be terribly interested in. It’s never easy to break in as a new operator on a construction crew, the more pieces you can operate the more chances you will have to get your chance and prove your value. Experience now means job opportunities later.
- Highly Experienced Trainers
To graduate the best, we hire the best. Our trainers all have extensive real-world experience, and are taken directly from the trucking and construction industries. No matter what machine you’re learning, you’ll have someone by your side who knows it inside and out.
- Proof-of-Safety Wallet Cards
Once you graduate, you’ll earn wallet cards which are recognized by the Ministry of Labour and employers across the country as proof of your competency. Keep in mind, these only certify you as an entry-level operator. Don’t listen to anyone trying to claim they can immediately make you a high-production operator, that’s simply not true. Only experience doing real work will earn you a high-production rating, but our certification and training will show you how to be a safe and productive member of any construction team .
