What are my options for excavator training?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It’s an excavator training powerpoint presentation that is used to train groups of people all at one time in one location. If you need to train a trainer to use the kit we offer a train the trainer online course.

Addon: We also offer a pre-shift excavator training video download. It’s an easy and efficient way to teach pre-shift excavator inspection procedures.

Online Training

Excavator training online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign courses to employees and monitor their progress. Online training is also eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+.

Train the Trainer

Excavator train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a single individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer course for no additional cost and is reusable. Results in a lifetime certification.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands-on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.
