A course designed for those who work in mines and construction

Mining andf Construction is a specific business, which demands specific knowledge. The course is especially dedicated to the challenges the drivers meet on the mines and construction site and when driving off-road.

Our 'Working in Mining & Construction' course deals with the driver’s influence on uptime and how to handle and maintain the truck in order to spare the vehicle and avoid damage. The course explains how to manage different loads as well as the safety aspects of the staff and truck.
