National Heavy Equipment Operators School!

National Heavy Equipment Operators School offers complete and fully accredited training for entry-level heavy machinery and equipment operators. Students train in Florida for heavy equipment safety, as well as jobs and careers on late model bulldozers, backhoes, wheel loaders, excavators, the very popular and versatile compact BOBCAT® excavators and skid steer loaders.

Over 35,000 students have successfully graduated from our programs and went on to become qualified equipment operators in many of the industry’s top companies. In our courses, you’ll learn how to use the construction-related heavy machinery and equipment for land clearing, culverts and ponds, ditches for utilities, pipe laying, and road building — including heavy equipment safety training.

As a nationally recognized and fully licensed organization, the National Heavy Equipment Operators School enables students to benefit from affordable training programs that comply with the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The heavy equipment operator courses we offer are also nationally accredited by the Distance Education  Accrediting Commission (DEAC), an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. We are also fully licensed by the State of Florida’s Commission for Independent Education and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

The courses offered by the National Heavy Equipment Operators School consist of two phases: the Home Study Phase and the Resident Training Phase, both of which you can complete according to your own pace and schedule.

Keep in mind you can start your training for heavy equipment safety at any time. Our home study program allows our students to work on the course AT HOME on your own time and at your own pace.

Once you complete the home study you can call to select the best resident training date that suits your plan. This is just one of the ways National Training is different from other heavy machinery and equipment schools.
