Backhoe Loader Operator Program
A backhoe, also known as a backhoe loader, is a versatile piece of heavy machinery used primarily for digging trenches and ditches on construction sites. A typical backhoe consists of a diesel-powered tractor, a front loader attachment and a scooper bucket controlled by hydraulics. The backhoe gets its name from the placement of the scooper bucket assembly on the back of the tractor.
This course provides the fundamentals of safety, maintenance, operation and machine control that apply to the Backhoe-loader. Each operator will receive a combination of classroom/theory and practical/hands-on training.

There will always be a requirement for qualified Backhoe-loader operators; it is not just today that there is a shortage. It is a skill in which many sectors have a demand. Construction, road building, forestry, mining, and general development programs require a large number of people to operate heavy machinery.
Backhoe operators have excellent job mobility, and experienced operators are very welcome in any construction project. Specialist operators are usually employed in specific industries, where their expertise adds a lot to productivity and site work efficiency. The career field isn’t limited to being an employee. Some experienced operators move into business for themselves as excavation subcontractors. That can be a particularly lucrative business, serving the construction industry and local authorities with high value contracts. This career option also requires business training, and extensive industry experience.
