Dump truck training.

Dump truck training is an option even if you have little or no experience, and with mine dump trucks worth in excess of $2,000.000 mines are always looking for responsible and competent dump truck operators who have received excellent dump truck training.

Most dump truck training courses will run intensively for about a week, and should include theory, simulator training and actual dump truck machine operation. Graduates should receive a nationally recognised certificate at the end of the dump truck training module.

Most dump truck training will take place on a real mining site with operator's training on mining specification dump trucks to give trainees real-time experience operating the trucks their mining employees will eventually expect them to be proficient at driving.

Some dump truck training courses include night time driving and emergency braking techniques to further improve dump truck driving skills, and will organise a list of potential mining employers who can be contacted for job placement opportunities.

Dump truck training courses are available to be pre-booked throughout Australia including Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and SA, and most cities including Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.
