JOIN the NAHETS to Gain Credibility for Your Heavy Equipment Training Institution
With the job market being in a crunch, people need to learn a skill or trade in order to tap into the good job opportunities that are available on the market. A heavy equipment training school can train people for lucrative careers that can pay substantial salaries after only a short training stint. We at the National Association of Heavy Equipment Training Schools are an association of schools that provide assessment testing, curriculum development, and any operational oversight that is needed to associated schools. Our association gives them support and assessment tools, so that their graduates can enter the workplace in entry level heavy equipment operator programs. Graduates should be 100% prepared to enter the workforce upon graduating from their training program.
Tips for Students to Find Quality Training Programs and Schools
Our association was founded in 2005 to serve all heavy equipment operator school programs. In order to be a member of our private association, a school must only offer heavy equipment training programs exclusively. The school must be completely committed to training students for exciting careers in this field. When students are embarking on their search for a reputable program, they should look for an operator program that has a sufficient training area that is large, dedicated heavy equipment training, membership with NAHETS, published standards, and they should have a resource center on campus as well. Even though we at NAHETS evaluate schools when they apply for membership, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the training program is legitimate and right for their needs. They need to thoroughly check the school out, and they should meet with a school counselor as well to make payment arrangements for the training, and to determine if financial aid is available.
