Course Content

Corrective Training
Candidates will undertake a 3 hour corrective training session with the course instructor. Corrective training cannot give skills and knowledge not held, but allows the experienced operator to eliminate ‘bad habits’ gained on a quarry.
Please note that the instructor has the right to refuse the candidate access to the test if they have dangerous operating skills that contravene any part of the Safety, Health and Welfare regulations.
Theory Test
On completion of the corrective training session, candidates are allowed 45 minutes to undertake a multi-choice question paper. Questions will be based on subjects about:
•Legislation and regulations
•Employer and employee responsibilities
•Safe working practices
•Machine components and functions
•Correct operating techniques
•Pre-use checks and basic maintenance
•Road travel (where permitted)
•Types and characteristics of materials and loads
•Site safety
•Shut down and securing procedures
Subjects that the questions will be based on will be covered during the corrective training.
To be successful on the theory test, candidates must achieve a minimum of 70% of the total available marks. Candidates who achieve a minimum of 85% will be awarded a credit.
Practical Test
On the test the candidate will demonstrate tasks with the site dumper. The grading sheet is divided into essential items and scored marks. Scored marks allow a limited number of minor errors to be made. To succeed, the candidate must achieve all essential items and not exceed the maximum score. Candidates who score no marks as well as all the essential marks will be awarded a credit.
The practical has a maximum time that all tasks must be completed within.
