Learn the skills required to safely operate heavy equipment.
Heavy equipment operators (HEO) not only work on regular construction building jobs, but also on infrastructure projects (roads, bridges, and ports, otherwise called non-building construction), and land development.
A trained and experienced heavy equipment operator provides necessary skills for any project that requires moving and transporting heavy materials, or jobs that demand any kind of earthmoving equipment. In this program students will learn to safely operate four major pieces of heavy equipment.
Participants must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid SC driver’s license. Participants must also be able to pass a drug screen and be able to achieve a Silver credential on the WorkKeys assessment.
