      Course Description

    Skid SteerThis course will go into great depth in regards to training skid steer trainers to become competent instructors. This course will teach participants the skills required to train adult learners. This program will begin teaching participants the same program a skid steer participant would learn to ensure potential trainers have a solid working knowledge of the skid steer; this includes a written and practical skills assessment to validate training competencies. Participants are then expected to spend up to 30 minutes teaching the SSM skid steer course to other participants to ensure they become comfortable instructing this course at their workplace.

    Skid steer loaders fall under part 22 of the Manitoba Safety Regulations and have similar hazards as operating a forklift; therefore training skid steer operators correctly is an essential component to any company which requires the use of a skid steer loader.

    Safety Services Manitoba’s skid steer loader training provides students with the most current legislative and industry best practice information regarding powered mobile equipment. Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of this course.
