Conduct Backhoe/Loader Operations is aimed at providing the necessary skills and knowledge to operate a Backhoe/Loader safely and efficiently. The course is a mixture of in class theory, practical demonstration and assessment covering all aspect of operation including legislation; hazards and risk control; planning; pre-use inspections; load charts; load characteristics; attachments; safe operation; transport; reporting procedures; shut down and post operation checks.

Any person who holds their Backhoe/Loader Ticket, can operate any Backhoe/Loader with all attachments (Buckets, Augers, Ripper). This unit alone does not provide sufficient skill to independently load and unload equipment, to complete this task safely, personnel must either complete or be assisting someone who has completed RIIHAN308F Load and unload plant (or equivalent)

The training is delivered face to face and typically takes 1 – 3 days to complete depending on group size and experience. Courses can be delivered from one of our locations or on site providing the correct equipment is available.
