(LB) – Backhoe

RIIMPO319D – Conduct backhoe/loader operations

The course is designed to train participants up to the OH&S Competency Standards required for operators of earthmoving equipment. This machine, generally speaking, is a combination of both the excavator and front end loader. Its capacity to dig and also carry is limited in comparison to each of the individual machines. However, there is a skill that is required to competently operate such a machine. Those seeking a machine with multi operational capabilities will be well rewarded upon obtaining their licence for the backhoe. Councils, plumbers, small civil contractors and land developers require the skills of a competent backhoe operator.


Students must be a minimum of 1 years of age and must display a mature approach with regard to not only their safety but that of their fellow students. Students must attend in appropriate work attire i.e. no joggers, thongs etc and provide proof of identification.


Nationally Recognized Certificate of Competency in the Workplace - Conducted in accordance with National Guidelines For Occupational Health & Safety Competency Standards For The Operation Of Load shifting Equipment And Other Types of Specified Equipment.
