Excavator One-Day Basic Course
Basic Excavator One-Day Course
Need to dig a 16-foot hole or do some deep trenching? There’s no better machine than an excavator. These machines are used routinely in the heavy construction business for drainage and conduit projects. The ability to rotate 360⁰ makes this the choice machine to use on cramped job sites.
Students will be introduced to various sized tracked excavators, learn to identify the main components of the equipment, the machine’s capabilities and maintenance requirements (fuel, oils, filters, etc.) including the greasing of the pivot points of the machines. Students will maneuver the machines around the yard and learn how to use the controls. This portion of the course will focus on the proficiency needed in the use of the machine through repetitive motions.
The Basic Excavator course is a 1-day (7 hour) duration made up of the following classes:
- ES1 Excavator Safety Awareness 1 hour Comprehensive
- EX1 Excavator Maintenance & Basic Controls 3 hours Practical
- EX4 Excavator Instruction 3 hours Practical
