The course is for operators who have some experience but also can be taken by new operators as an introduction.  However, a follow up evaluation of practical skills would have to be done once a new operator has had some training and experience to receive certification.

    The goal of this course is to produce a Front End Loader operator with the necessary skills required to reduce the risk of both injuries and equipment damage.
