Course Durations & Topics

Earthmoving licences are designed for students that are new entrants to the construction industry and those who have operated an earthmoving machinery under supervision on worksites and require licensing. Earthmoving operations require licensing and training. Our courses cover all the Workplace Health and Safety, Codes of Practice, safe operating procedures, electrical safety, hazard identification, start-up and shut down procedures, and much more. This course provides a pathway to obtaining an Earthmoving licence. Students must meet the following criteria in order to obtain an Earthmoving Operators licence:

    • Participation in course theory and practical demonstration.
    • Theory component will include completion of exam, discussions, questioning and watching a series of safety and instructional DVD’s.
    • Observation will include operation of the relevant earthmoving machinery, in a variety of settings.
    • Training and theory can be delivered off-the-job at our training centre, or on-site at your premises.
    • Training delivery combines face-to-face trainer led theory classes and practical sessions.
    • Trainees are provided with all the relevant training material that covers all parts of the course.
