I have always heard that you must have at least a year or two of experience to be hired in the heavy equipment industry. Is this true?
No, it’s not true. With the completion of a training certificate from National, you will be afforded opportunities from contractors to “show your stuff.” The industry needs operators to replace the ones leaving and to fill the jobs required by the overwhelming increase in construction projects across the nation. With the right mix of formal training, motivation, and integrity, no experience is required for entry-level jobs.
