January 16, 2008

Caterpillar introduces a new computer-based Mini Hydraulic Excavator Operator Training Course aimed at helping owners of the versatile compact machines prepare and retain a competent operator fleet and protect their investment.

The training program covers the fundamentals of daily maintenance, machine controls, safe operating practices, and operating techniques for Caterpillar® mini hydraulic excavators weighing up to 6 metric tons.

 Finding and retaining qualified operators is one of the toughest challenges faced by contractors today,” says Dan Bruch, North American General Construction Training Manager.  The program incorporates video, sound, and a series of knowledge checks to ensure comprehension.

We wanted an informative program that would engage the student, even if the individual isn™t accustomed to spending a time at a computer screen.”

The Cat® Mini Hydraulic Excavator Operator Training Course will contain both English and Spanish languages narration and text. A computer with a DVD-ROM drive is required. The course is available from any Caterpillar dealer.
