At Heavy Equipment Colleges of America, we understand the importance of ensuring that your employees are properly trained. We think that it is so important, in fact, that we have dedicated over a decade to creating and refining our training and evaluation processes. We are proud to provide our evaluating and training options to both students and businesses.

Some businesses wonder if they really need to invest in proper training for specialized equipment. After all, as long as the employees in question get the work done everything is fine, right? The answer to this is, of course, “no.” You should never underestimate just how important proper training and objective evaluation is when it comes to jobsite safety. Indeed, the failure to properly assess your employees and their skill levels could open you up to risk of injuries and claims. Why take this risk?

We are happy to offer specialized equipment training along with our other certification, assessment and training programs to businesses.
