Caterpillar® Equipment Training Solutions Offers More

Cost Effective Ways to Train Heavy Equipment Operators

The mission of Caterpillar Equipment Training Solutions is to help Cat® equipment users get the maximum return on investment through the delivery of operator training services. Caterpillar now offers new e-learning opportunities, as well as instructor led simulator-based, classroom and in-the-iron programs.

CaterpillarÒ equipment users recognize that operator training is valuable to the success of their organizations and have requested more operator training. In response, Caterpillar Equipment Training Solutions has produced the necessary building blocks to create a professional equipment operator career development program.

The new e-Learning curriculum is full of tips and techniques on safety, machine inspection and operation. Technology-enabled learning creates a new type of classroom-one that is created when you log onto a website, insert a compact disc or join an instructor-led virtual class. This means learning when you want it, where you want it and in a format that is best for you.  Accessible, immediate and focused on the individual, technology-enabled learning is a key component of our continual learning environment.

The Virtual Training System using simulators is another key tool for training operators. Current simulators include hydraulic excavators, motor graders, off-highway trucks, wheel loaders and wheel tractor scrapers.  These innovative training solutions, which include cost effective PC-based simulators, deliver benefits throughout your operation:

  • Enhanced safety – No risk to trainees, instructors, site personnel, machines or property.
  • Reduced production loss – Minimized use of production machines for training.
  • Increased production – Enhanced information retention and productivity upon beginning work.
  • Reduced costs – Improved applicant screening, reduced training supervision and training time, and lower machine operating costs.
  • Flexibility – No limitations due to equipment or site availability, or weather conditions.
  • Record keeping – Performance can be tracked and retained for employee files.

Caterpillar Equipment Training Solutions also offers instructor-led training programs to make your best operators even better. These professional operator training programs are available for a wide variety of industries and machines and are designed to refine and enhance the experienced heavy machine operator's skills. Instructors are experts in their fields.

Our training courses offer much more than the customary orientation training offered at time of machine delivery.  Your equipment investment pays greater dividends when it is put to skillful use. To learn more about all the training options available, visit, or
