The primary goal of the Heavy Equipment College of Georgia's Heavy Equipment Operations training is to prepare you with the skills, knowledge, and credentials needed to get a great job in the heavy equipment and construction industry. Through field training and classroom activities, we prepare students to immediately and effectively work on the construction jobsite. This training includes instruction in the most commonly used heavy equipment and cranes, as well as equipment maintenance and safety operations. You’ll also learn to read blueprints, evaluate soil conditions, and apply general math principles for calculating volume and weight. These are the skills that will set you apart from the pack.
