Course Duration

Three (3) days or 32 hours approximately. Typically, this class is conducted outside unless the weather turns wet then we train inside the dome.

Target Audience

This class is available to Knife River employees & Knife River Strategic Partners. Call the Center for more details.

Prerequisite is a previous graduate of our Dozer Level 2 course.

Course Overview

The course is designed to take Dozer Level 2 Graduates to a whole new level of productivity using 2D technology.

Operators are measured before training against objective performance/operation standards and then measured again after training. This provides owners/supervisors with data to generalize how much improvement their operator(s) made during the course.

Course consists of both classroom and in-the-seat training operating machines. This course is much more than a PowerPoint lecture.
