About this course:
The Backhoe Operator Certification Course gives operators a classroom presentation, followed by a written exam, and ultimately a demonstration/practice session followed by evaluation of their skills per industry standards. The classroom portion focuses on key information needed for safe operation of a loader backhoe. The hands-on portion provides the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment under the direct supervision of an expert instructor at a facility custom built to provide operators with “real world” conditions. The training is not make or model specific but covers characteristics of many of today’s loader backhoes such as Caterpillar, John Deere, Kubota, JCB, Case, Terex, and others.
