Dumper and Excavator

Purple Training Solutions can provide these courses at our Ilchester training centre or across the South West at your workplace*. We can offer training from complete novice to experienced worker assessment ranging in duration from 1 to 10 days on the excavator and 1 to 3 days on the dumper. The maximum number of delegates on the course is 3. Training time may be reduced depending on numbers on the course.

We can offer these courses either with a Purple Training Solutions certificate valid for five years or with NPORS accreditation with certificate and photo ID card.

The courses comprise a section on the theory and safe working practice with a written test and a practical session completing a number of standard procedures to show competency using the machine.
