PROFESSIONAL HEAVY EQUIPMENT TRAINING
Welcome to West Coast Training! We provide construction companies and workers with heavy equipment training and certification programs. Our goal is to help our students maximize their earning potential by providing them with the knowledge required of today’s industry professionals.
Students enrolled in our classes complete four-to-eight weeks of training per class, plus classes can be combined into Training Programs to ensure graduates have the right mix of skills for the career they are training for. Our individual courses include Heavy Equipment Operator education for the use of backhoes, excavators, dozers, and other heavy earthmoving machinery; 8 Week Crane Operator & Rigger a comprehensive course where students certify to operate mobile cranes, tower cranes, rig loads, and signal, and to practice more advanced lifting tasks; 4 Week Mobile Crane Operator certification to teach students how to operate mobile cranes they might encounter on the job. We also offer additional seminars and refresher courses that are great for construction companies to certify their operators, or other industry professionals looking to brush up on their skills.

There’s no better way to learn than through hands-on instruction, so students enrolled in our courses split their time between practical classroom instruction and hands-on field instructions. After orientation in small groups, each student is provided with dedicated machine time to learn the equipment as an individual, instead of “taking turns” sharing just a few machines amongst a large class. Our field course component is essential to our graduates having the real-world skills they need to succeed in the workplace. This is why we keep classes small and our training equipment inventories high – we care about the quality of our training!
OUR CREDENTIALS & ACCREDITATION
Our students deserve the best possible foundation as they enter the workforce. Our Heavy Equipment Operation course follows the NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) curriculum and meets all its training requirements.
