Heavy Equipment Operator Programs

Learn how to maneuver, control, and help maintain the heavy machinery and equipment used in the construction of roads, bridges, buildings, and more.

Population growth and rising infrastructure spending are expected to contribute to steadily growing employment in this industry, and our Heavy Equipment Operator Programs are designed to get you ready to take advantage of this high-demand career field.

We utilize top-tier equipment like Caterpillar, Deere, and Volvo, so you know you’re learning the best of the best. And all of these programs include a unique focus on “seat time” — meaning that all your lab hours are conducted in the operator’s seat of the types of equipment you’ll use on the job.
