Training for Industry from Industry

HEO Training

240 hour program consists of classroom and hands on practical training on all equipment. We promise you will leave this program knowing more than you thought with a desire for more seat time in these amazing machines!

Why Choose Us?


We are a private family-owned company. This allows us to personalize your training experience and make changes on the spot. Field decisions are so important in this line of work!


Our program was developed and is taught by the owners. We want you to have the BEST training experience with the most knowledgeable instructors. We are invested and we are involved. We try to make the whole process from applying to accommodations to training as smooth as possible.


This training is expensive, you deserve the best experience. Not only do we have so much fun, but you also learn A LOT! Our trainers come directly from the industry (sometimes training for us in-between running projects for construction companies). This keeps us current and relevant. And helps you stay employed πŸ˜‰


When you train with us, you are working on a real, live jobsite!!! We do NOT do parking lot training. When training with us, you are actually in work/production mode. We run our program like a construction site – complete with portable site office, daily FLRA meetings, safety paperwork, porta potties, fuel station, etc. Our purpose is to prepare you for what construction companies are looking for, and we do this well.


Our program has the most practical / seat time hours within industry. We believe you learn better in the seat of the machine, not in the classroom. Don’t you think so too?


Safety is our top priority. Your life matters. Your classmates lives matter. And our lives matter. There is so much potential for injuries and even fatalities in this line of work. We want to ensure that none of our students ever get hurt, because they know better, and they understand safe operating procedures. And we can’t forget that these machines cost between $250k – $750k EACH, employers want you to take care of them. We teach you how to do that.


We have awards! You can win promo material, cash or gift certificates. Who doesn’t like a little friendly competition with your work/training family?!


We truly care about you. We follow up with you and encourage you to do the same. There are so many mixed feelings once training is nearing completion, we understand. We are here for support!


Our program doesn’t just cover how to operate heavy equipment. We spend a lot of time on how to maintain the equipment, daily servicing, and minor repairs are completed on the spot. In this industry, if your machine is down so are you. Sometimes you’re working out of town, not close to any Brandt Tractor, Toromont, Komatsu, etc. We want you to know how to properly maintain the valuable piece of equipment you are entrusted to.


Last but not least …. Our program is simply the best! Don’t wait, SIGN UP NOW!
