Our 240 HOUR HEO PROGRAM offers the same training hours with less down time and expense!

With the program schedule of 10 hours per day, Monday – Saturday for 4 weeks (instead of 8 hours per day Monday – Friday for 6 weeks as others offer), your time in School is shortened by 2 weeks. This allows our students to get used to a realistic work schedule in this industry, receive training and move onto their future employment faster, while having received the same amount of training hours as other comparable 240 Hour programs. It also saves on 2 weeks of added travel, meal and accommodation expense if coming from out of town, and saves on 2 weeks of missed potential income!

Our 240 HOUR HEO PROGRAM offers more practical training!

With only 1 day of in-class training, followed by 23 days of practical training, consisting of a safety meeting each morning, pre-operational inspections, equipment operation and minor servicing as required, our students receive more practical training hours than other comparable 240 Hour HEO programs – which is the BEST way to learn!

We train on a variety of REAL heavy equipment – no simulators!

The variety of heavy equipment offered meets industry standards and makes students more employable, as contractors can utilize you on a variety of equipment.  The 240 HOUR HEO PROGRAM offers training on 4 different pieces of heavy equipment, which based on the feedback of past students, is supported as a reasonable number for the hours offered in this program.  It provides the student with enough training hours on each piece, to leave feeling confident and not overloaded!

We offer smaller class sizes, which provides the students with a more intimate training experience!

Students receive more individualized attention and interact more with the instructor.  It allows the instructor more flexibility, and smaller groups tend to work better together.  It’s less intimidating, students never feel unheard or distracted, and ultimately enjoy a better academic experience!
