The content of this course is focused on three key areas:

Lesson 1 - Hauling: In this lesson, trainees will learn about the two primary types of drive systems used to power haul trucks, a safe following distance between trucks, how to prevent tire damage or failure, managing truck speed on down grades, and what steps to follow if the haul truck gets stuck.

Lesson 2 - Loading: This lesson focuses on traffic patterns that trucks should follow when being loaded and proper truck positioning when being spotted by loading equipment.

Lesson 3 - Dumping: This lesson covers common dumping methods, how close a truck should get to the dump crest when dumping a load, and signals the truck operator needs to be familiar with when being spotted by a track dozer.

Trainers: Before you begin classroom or field training, why not provide your trainees with a solid foundation of knowledge about the equipment and how to operate it safety? This web-based training course can be delivered any time, anywhere you have access to a high-speed internet connection.
