Excavator Training

Our RTITB Excavator courses will give you the skills needed to be a safe and efficient excavator operator. Completion of an excavator course will enable you to develop skills and knowledge for the different excavator machine variations.

This is a specialist course and therefore not all RTITB centres deliver this training. However, those who do may offer nationwide coverage.

Courses will include, but will not be limited to, the following areas;

  • Introduction to the machine
  • Familiarisation of controls
  • Pre-use inspections
  • Basic maintenance of the machine
  • Operation of hydraulic controls
  • Starting/moving/stopping and steering the truck
  • Excavating and digging procedures
  • Trenching and backfilling procedures
