START YOUR HEAVY EQUIPMENT TRAINING

Salaries Remain High in the Construction Industry

According to a recent survey conducted by NCCER, skilled craft professionals continue to earn top dollar, with notably high salaries in the construction industry.

Heavy equipment operators are among some of the professions that earn more than $60,000 annually. Since many in this profession receive overtime, per diem, project bonuses and other pay incentives, take-home pay is typically much greater!

With a job market full of new graduates and experienced professionals alike, competition in certain industries can be tough. Doesn’t it make sense to opt for an industry that is actively creating new jobs to accommodate high demand? At HEC, we think so. In fact, we believe investing in an education that focuses on the skilled trades involved in heavy equipment and crane operation will serve you well and lead to a satisfying and reliable career. This is one of the reasons why we have worked hard to create training facilities that are designed to bring students both hands-on experience as well as textbook knowledge.

Today, we are proud to serve students all across the United States of America. We offer our services in six locations spanning from California to North Carolina. Take a look below for more information about our different locations and what they offer.

Our programs are designed to help you become an effective and safe worker. With our help, you will also learn to evaluate soil conditions, read blueprints and apply general math concepts to calculate weight and volume. These are skills that will help set you apart from other candidates and you will also receive instruction in:

Construction Site Preparation
Landscaping
Utility and Underground Excavation

In addition to oil, gas, railroad, waste disposal and recycling, and construction, graduates from our heavy equipment training schools are eligible for a variety of jobs in many industries, including equipment operation, crane operation, site preparation and management, excavation, utilities and underground, trenching, road construction, airport construction, and commercial and residential construction.
