Do you require training in the safe operation of a special typed vehicle, (T) track (digger/excavator), (R) roller or (W) wheeled vehicle?
On our Machine Operator – Introduction course you will learn how to safely operate the selected vehicle in a safe environment.
This is a great starting point if you are wanting your W, T, R endorsements and do not have the current experience.
You will have a minimum of 45 minutes user operation on the machine.
Courses are limited to a maximum of 4 participants.
What you will learn:
Machine is included in the cost.
Wheels, Tracks and Rollers endorsements (W,T,R)
If you drive a special-type vehicle in public areas, you must have a W, T or R endorsement on your driver licence.
The course includes both theory and practical components and is completed in a half day (4 hours)
Once you have completed the approved course you will be given a certificate (the certificate is not a valid endorsement on your licence). You must take this to an NZTA licensing agent (VTNZ or AA) and have your endorsement(s) put on your licence.
