Tue April 09, 2013 - National Edition

Vista Training, Waterford, Wisc., recently launched a new skid steer loader training module as part of its Silver Series of web-deliverable operator training programs. It is focused on helping operators to be safe and productive when operating one of these versatile machines in mining and construction. Because this program is web-based, trainees can view it any time, anywhere a high-speed internet connection is available.

The content of Skid Steer Loader — Basic Operation & Safety is focused on seven key areas:

• Design features and components

• Safety and pre-use inspection

• Start-up, controls and testing

• Machine operation

• Filling the bucket

• Carrying and dumping loads

• Machine shut down

This one-hour web-based, self-directed course is practical for trainers to provide their trainees with a solid foundation of equipment and safety knowledge before they begin classroom or field training.
