Equipment Operator Training: Seat time training on a Backhoe, Skidsteer and Roller

CEFA was selected by the Alabama Department of Transportation to deliver Equipment Operator Training.  The purpose of the grant is to prepare Minorities, Women and Veterans as equipment operators.  We are looking for 12 students.

Students will receive hands on/seat time training on a: backhoe, Skidsteer and Roller on the training center grounds.  CEFA has contracted with United Rentals as the entity handling the actual equipment training under there DIRT Academy program.  We will use some NCCER material to complete the training.

This training will occur in a 3 week period….start to finish. The weeks of April 9th,16th and 23rd.

If you know a person who would be interested in participating in this class, have them contact CEFA.  The students will have available some support for mileage to and from class, and will be provided the PPE needed to operate the equipment.

This is the first real seat time training that has been offered in our area.  ALDOT is working to help road contractors meet diversity requirements, by offering the training funded by a grant. 


February 18th is the deadline to apply.
