"I attended two months if heavy equipment traing and one month of CDL. Had a great time learning. Very educated instructors. Met alot of new friends. Right out of CDL I started driving dump truck for a custom home builder and everyday I'm either driving or operating a dozer or excavator. I can not say enough for the education I received in heavy and (CDL) driving."

"I went into West Coast Training with very little knowledge of heavy equipment or trucks. After finishing the training, it only took me two weeks to find a job thanks to the staff. I am working for a major excavation contractor driving water trucks, dozers, loaders and track hoes. West Coast Training was a key player in helping me prepare for this industry and for my future success working in it.

"The crane training I received was great! My instructor is a highly qualified crane operator and shared his experience and knowledge of the field. Almost immediately out of school, I was hired as a crane operator with a very large construction company involved in building dams. Thank You."

"I had the best educational experience possible ... fantastic and knowledgeable instructors that always took the time to provide individual help. The key to landing the job that I got was the Class-A CDL ... after 4 weeks on the job, my employer had to lay off some of his crew, but he kept me because of my NCCER heavy equipment training and the CDL A license I have."

Matt N. | Utah
"I'm writing to thank you for the great job you folks did in preparing my son for employment as a heavy equipment operator, and to report on his job search. About a month after graduation, he was invited by friends to move to the Salt Lake City area, to live with them and pursue work with the many construction, mining, and quarrying firms nearby. He landed a job with a company that makes large rock retaining walls, waterfalls, and custom landscaping with boulders. He uses an excavator to load the truck with rocks of all sizes and transports them to the worksite. The training Matt received made him confident enough to go out on cold calls, introducing himself as a capable operator. He told us many times how impressed employers were with his credentials. He now has a dream job, running the "big machines" he has loved since he was 4 years old.
Matt spoke often of how much he appreciated the West coast Training staff, of the relaxed but thorough training atmosphere, and especially of the extent and practicality of the knowledge he gained from your school. We are deeply grateful he had the chance to train with you, and wish you much continued success in helping others to reach their goals."
