Who Should Attend
Anyone who needs to operate a 180 Excavator.
A 1 day ‘test only’ can be carried out on candidates with relevant experience.
Training duration is dependent on the number of candidates, and each candidates previous experience. Generally a novice candidate would require 10 days training on the 180 Excavator (this is based on 3 candidates with little or no experience) however this can be significantly reduced with relevant experience.
