Construction/Heavy Equipment/Earthmoving Equipment Operation. 490202

Description

The Construction Equipment Operation Certificate teaches students how to properly operate and maintain heavy equipment used to excavate and move earth as part of the construction industry. Students spend the majority of class time operating equipment on job sites located within Northark’s service area to develop the skills needed for success. The certificate can be used as one of the technical disciplines required for the AAS in General Technology and is frequently combined with the Certificate of Proficiency in Truck Driving to allow students to work for employers who required employees to hold a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL).


Students use Northark’s heavy equipment including bulldozers, backhoes, excavator, an earth mover, grader, dump truck and semi-truck to work on projects in the community.
