Heavy Equipment Operation

Our courses are suited for beginner or experienced operators who want to train on heavy equipment such as Graders, Dozers, Haul Truck, Excavators, Wheel Loaders and more. Participants will learn, both in our high-tech CAT Simulator lab and in the field, running equipment side by side with our experienced instructors.

The BTI Heavy Equipment Operator training is developed in partnership with industry to ensure they are comprehensive, relevant, and respected by employers. BTI students are taught to operate heavy equipment through a state-of-the-art learning environment combined with the CAT Simulators, hands-on simulated job site training, and using curriculum from Caterpillar and the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).
