Practical operator testing is held on-site at your facility and is scheduled following the in-class segment.  The instructor will work with 1 - 2 operators at a time for approximately 30 - 60 minutes and each will be put through a series of operating tasks and maneuvers to assess competency and safety awareness on the equipment. Pre-shift inspection and reporting procedures are also covered. Additional time will be required for testing on more than 2 pieces of equipment or attachments.
