Heavy Equipment Operator Training and Certificate Programs

 

Our award-winning training is unique in the industry. We tailor your training to meet your specific needs. We train on all equipment types, and we include information specific to your equipment, right down to the make, model, and series!

 

EKpass approaches mobile equipment operator training in a distinctive way. What we offer is unlike anything that is currently available elsewhere. EKpass utilizes decades of field experience, and decades of training experience. The combination of this experience has culminated to result in training that is as rewarding for you as it is for your operators.

 

Training effectiveness is measured by the degree of retained knowledge. Operators who have experienced EKpass training have been shown to have significant knowledge retention, in part because they have a high perceived value of the training. EKpass is dedicated to creating training programs that meet your objectives, and that are meaningful to the operator. The measured degree of retained knowledge can be produced to you by EKpass in the form of charts and graphs.

 

Training begins in the classroom where the fundamentals are covered, including safety, basic maintenance, operating techniques, and advanced skills.

 

The bulk of our mobile equipment operator training is an effective and engaging hands- on component, conducted by an EKpass instructor, a seasoned veteran who’s “been there, done that”. Operators can relate to EKpass instructors, and EKpass instructors can relate to them. This relatability fosters a boost in morale and its effects are long lasting.

 

Mobile equipment operator training is provided at your place of business, using the equipment that trainees will be operating. Not only can production continue during training, but the operators also learn in their actual work environment!

 

If you need training to take place off your site instead, our training team can also arrange for an alternate location.

 

We use proven knowledge testing mechanisms, including practical skills assessments where the operator is assessed while actually operating.

 

Our heavy equipment operator training encompasses many categories – mobile equipment (both fixed rail and free moving), heavy equipment, and more – so whatever your training needs are, it’s almost certain we can meet them. Need more specific information? Please contact us directly, we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

    THE MINING INDUSTRY

     

    The mining industry has experienced a great number of changes. Recently, the changing face of mining has increased dramatically.

     

    With the rapid changes in the mining industry comes a need for real and meaningful mining equipment training and safety initiatives. The cost of mobile equipment is rising and the nature of such equipment is becoming more and more sophisticated. There is a real need to be more productive in order to improve the return on investment.

     

    EKpass delivers mining equipment training that addresses productivity techniques; safe procedures; methods for determining if equipment is producing optimally; and much more. EKpass provides customized training programs that can be specific to your equipment, right down to the make, model, and serial number if desired. We provide mining equipment training for many categories of mobile equipment, including both fixed rail and free moving. Whatever your training needs are, EKpass can meet them.

     

    EKpass is committed to providing training that is specific to your needs. When creating a customized training program, EKpass targets detailed training to address the dynamics involved in your operation. This can include, but is not limited to mobile equipment applications; climate and conditions; and culture.

     

    EKpass specializes in challenging environments. The mining industry conducts operations in environments that have many challenges. From site conditions; environmentally sensitive areas; and close proximity work areas to the ever increasing complexity and capabilities of mining equipment, EKpass can create training that matches your unique environment.

     

    EKpass offers services from 3 different operational arms; training, consulting, and I.T. services. We refer to these operational arms as the “Spheres of Operation”. EKpass can provide any number of combinations of services from these spheres of operation. We continue to add to the assets we can offer through development of creative new programs based on field and industry experience and processes.

    WEB BASED TRAINING

     

    There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
