Site Ready Plant Operator Courses

What do we mean by site ready courses?… Well this isn’t just a digger loading a truck which then tips the load back into the same place that it has been dug from. Site ready courses simulate “muckshifting” which is moving copious amounts of material from one area to another area to a) create various formations or b) to build and design surfaces, whether that be for buildings to be erected on, or to change the landscape of the area on a permanent basis. DOTTS specialise in heavy plant operational training centred around simulating a real life environment. We focus on Dozer, Excavator and Dumptruck training only, to provide our candidates with the necessary skillsets and methods to take away and use in the real world.
