How To Get Started As A Heavy Equipment Operator.


Admit it, when you were a young child, up to your early teen years seeing those massive pieces of equipment moving and hauling dirt was the coolest thing EVER. Growing up, playing with those toy trucks and bulldozers never fizzled out. You might have even told yourself at one point “that’s what I want to do when I get older”. Well you can now. With the rapid production of commercial, industrial and residential buildings, the first people on site to get those projects rolling are heavy equipment/dirt moving companies. With an expected 5% growth through 2030, which equals out to be about 20,000 new jobs in the coming decade. That’s an awesome career outlook! When it comes to pay, that varies completely on company, location, union/non-union, and experience! You could expect anywhere from $40,000 starting out to $100,000 after a couple years.

So do you want to live out your childhood dream, of operating a big ol’ bulldozer and moving dirt? Stick around, let’s make those dreams come true.
