This online skid steer training certification course was specially developed for skid steers, also referred to as Bobcat Loader or a Skid Steer Loader. The onsite and online Skid Steer operator training classes are designed for a new trainee or a refresher course, where the operator's current Bobcat certification has expired and they need to be recertified. This online safety training course is broken into two sections, the online course test, and then the practical driver’s operator evaluation.
This will involve reviewing the necessary information through a slideshow, then completing a multi choice "true or false" test. Then the trainee will be asked to take the driver operator safety evaluation. (Which will be done by someone who is currently certified to operate a skid steer) Please read the "How It Works" page.
The trainee will need to demonstrate their ability to operate the equipment in a safe and efficient manner where he/she will be put through a series of driving and operating exercises, including the safe operation of the attachment. Upon successful completion of the course the participant will receive a certificate which is valid for 3 years. The trainee will now be OH&S and OSHA-compliant.
