Note: Safety (blaze orange) clothing with reflective tape markings is acceptable as long as it is on an outer garment. Having a driver’s licence is NOT a requirement to operate or take a Heavy Equipment Training Program, however, you will be responsible for arranging your own transportation to off-campus training sites (if required). Most companies do require their operators to have a driver’s licence, as they may have to drive the equipment on a public road in the course of transporting it to a job site.

Acceptable forms of payment are Cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Certified Cheque, Money Order or BankDraft. If you are being financed through this course, you must provide written confirmation from your sponsor or a signed MTCU contract at the time of registration.
Certification: Diplomas and wallet cards will be issued to applicants upon successful completion
NOTE: If you are combining a Heavy Equipment Course with a Truck Training Course, additional classrooms and in-truck training will be added. There will also be additional pre-requisite costs. Please refer to our truck course information package for more information.
