Note: This service is strictly for HEO's working in Industry with previous machine operation experience, NOT for new workers attempting to challenge a course to gain certification.

Please Note: Certifying officer(s) on site will determine HEO's eligibility to pass or inability (fail) to demonstrate competent, proficient, and safe operating technique and procedures.

NO REFUNDS will be given to operators who fail to pass.

Procedure

CERTIFICATION DURATION
There is a 3 hour time slot booked for each Certification. Certifications likely do not require the full time slot as the certifying officer(s) can tell very quickly how experienced and proficient the operator in question is.

CERTIFICATION OUTLINE
There will be a toolbox meeting discussing the Certification. Operators must be able to perform ALL necessary pre-start and shut down procedures independently. Observation is made by the Certifying Officer(s) of the student performing routine machine tasks and specific machine tasks assigned by the certifying officer(s).

Competency FAQ

  • Upon successful completion operators will immediately receive a Certification Certificate, and Wallet Sized Operator ID Card from the certifying officer(s)
