About this course
Mini Digger training would be delivered to you on your own site; you would need to supply the Mini Digger. Basic training must be conducted off the job, however during later stages of the training some work tasks may be able to be incorporated once candidates have reached an acceptable standard of safe operation. Every endeavour is taken to minimise the impact on normal working operations and ensure that training is relevant and industry specific.
You will learn
- Controls and instruments
- Coolant, fuel and lubrication systems
- Current relevant regulations
- Excavating deep and shallow excavation
- Explanation of attachments
- Introduction of the machine
- Other associated activities
- Pre-shift inspections
- Trenching, back-filling, levelling and marking out (where applicable)
This course qualifies you to operate mini diggers on any site in the UK with permission of the person responsible for site H & S. Operate mini diggers within the category of mini digger for which you receive training. Use any attachment for which you receive training. It does not qualify you to instruct others in the use of a mini digger or supervise anyone who has not received formal training and qualification in the use of a mini digger.
