Water Truck Operator Training & Assessment
Aim of this Course / Target Group
The Water Truck Operator certification program follows on from the haul / dump truck training course and provides information and guided practice that will equip experienced operators with the skills necessary to demonstrate competence to the minimum national certification standards (NOHSC7019) and to lay the foundation skills of new operators so that they can, in a safe manner, continue to improve their skills and proficiency whilst operating the machine.
