Jackson’s Heavy Equipment Training, LLC specializes in technical safety heavy equipment operator training delivered on-site through instructor-led classroom instruction and in-the-seat (hands-on) operating time under the supervision of the instructor(s) in a controlled environment. Training can be arranged exclusively for your organization at your location, saving time and money or in collaboration with multiple organizations.


Training can also be tailored to meet your specific needs. Training programs are designed to give the operator the fundamental skills and knowledge to operate and succeed. 


This program is designed to equip operators, supervisors, and managers of all skill levels with proper road profiles, drain issues, drainage methods, new techniques, and technologies. This course was developed with different levels and modules to coordinate with the skills and experience of the operators. Click here to learn more. 

Front End Loaders

Loaders are versatile and are easy to handle and maneuver. They are primarily used for lifting and moving material, but can be used for a variety of functions. Training provides an overview of safety associated with operations, loader components, pre-operational checks, and will boost trainees skills on how to execute and perform basic operations with a loader in a diverse, fun and challenging environment. 


There are several options in excavation work. Backhoes can be one on the most common types of equipment that your agency utilizes. Operators should know the parts of the equipment and operating procedures. Training is provided in a diverse setting to stimulate an overview of backhoes, pre-operational checks, potential hazards and techniques required to safely perform operation activities. 

Skid Steer

Skid Steers are compact, highly maneuverable pieces of equipment that are designed to utilize a wide variety of attachments. Nearly all workers will be exposed to a skid steer at some time or another. Training provides an invigorating in-sight on skid-steer related safety guidelines, components, basic maneuvers and operations, to include loading on a trailer. 


A dozer can be one of the most useful pieces of equipment in construction and excavation operations. Its usefulness can be limited through mobility and transport limitations. But operators need to understand the capabilities of the dozer and be aware of potential hazards that exist. Training provides an overview on safety associated with dozers, pre-operational checks, components of a dozer, and perform basic maneuvers to include slot dozing. 


Moving large volumes of material is the primary purpose of scrapers. Material is cut or stripped away from the earth and transported to be used in other locations. Scrapers can do a lot of work. This would be a great training to incorporate into Level 3 grader training and provide a foundation for safe and efficient operation of scrapers while incorporating road building techniques.
