Sample Program Outline

Phase 1 – Theory Training

The trainer guides trainees through a comprehensive and interactive review of the operator workbook covering:

  • Applicable regulations
  • Variations of equipment types
  • Main parts
  • Understanding equipment safety
  • Fuels and batteries

Phase 2 – Theory Evaluation

The trainer administers a written test based on the concepts covered in the operator’s reference manual. The test consists of multiple-choice/essay-type questions, which is graded and returned to the trainees, then reviewed to ensure understanding. A minimum score of 70% is required to pass.

Phase 3 – Practical Training

Trainees are shown the pre-use inspection, safe operating procedures, and parking/shut-down procedures and then given the opportunity to practice under the helpful eye of the program trainer.

Phase 4 – Practical Evaluation

Trainees are assessed as having reached a minimum skill level are individually evaluated using the equipment in a reasonably challenging course. Following the evaluation, trainees are debriefed and given the opportunity to address any issues they may have regarding their training. Each successful trainee’s employer will receive official records and documents shortly after the end of the program.
