Industrial Safety & Equipment Training Academy

About ISET Academy

Since 2014  ISET ACADEMY has set the standard for certifying heavy equipment operators are properly trained and fully qualified to do the job,                not just be familiar with the controls!

OUR MISSION:  To provide the most informative real world training programs students will remember and enjoy.   Proper fundamentals and methodology are taught to beginners and reinforced to experienced operators with expert guidance.

The demand for heavy equipment operators being certified is on the rise as employers must be in compliance with OSHA regulations and private individuals want every advantage they can find in today’s very competitive job market.

Most of today’s machines are computerized.  Without training, it would be difficult to know how to navigate the control panel, select control patterns, verify hydraulic flow pressures, engage and disengage the hydraulic lockers, couplers, auxiliary lines and then we can go over how to actually run the machine safely and effectively.  Can’t get that on YouTube!

Our programs are all unique, fast paced, very hands-on, and you will enjoy and remember what you do here.   We have qualified thousands of operators. You will be able to apply the skills learned here immediately!
