Machine Operator Training is the perfect course to increase knowledge of the Volvo machine, learn safe operating techniques, and discover how to use the machine to minimize wear and tear. The result is a more effective operation with reduced costs and more uptime.
Training enables operators to continually refine their skills and operating practices, helping to lower the risk of incidents or accident.
Training can help prevent unnecessary strain being put on the machine, minimizing wear and tear – hence reducing costs.
With a good understanding of the many intelligent features and functions of their Volvo machines, operators can use the machine to its full potential.
Correct machine use keeps your machines in good condition and reduces the risk of unplanned downtime, while increasing machine lifetime and residual value.
Training is proven to increase job satisfaction, resulting in happier and more productive operators. A commitment to employee development also helps attract talented operators.
Designed around the requirements of your operators and your business, Machine Operator Training is delivered through a combination of theory and practice.
Following time in the classroom, participants get out in the field to apply what they have learnt. Firstly completing a machine walkaround and familiarization, before getting behind the controls to work through an extensive list of machine functions and tasks. Our expert trainer monitors performance throughout the practical tasks, providing feedback and suggested improvements in real-time. This practical session can be completed with ready-to-use exercises, or during the operator's daily work, coached by the instructor.
To support the training program, as well as sustain the results achieved, your Volvo dealer can offer a range of smart solutions.
Below are some examples.
Irrespective of bad weather or lack of machines, the practical parts of the Machine Operator Training can always be performed in a state-of-the-art Volvo simulator.
With both excavator, wheel loader and articulated hauler configurations available, Volvo simulators accurately replicate real site and machine handling conditions to give operators an authentic job-site experience. Operator efficiency and productivity are measured in detail while operating the simulator to help track performance and monitor improvement.
