Plant operators use a range of specialised heavy machinery and vehicles, such as backhoes, skidsteer, front end loaders and excavators. In order to work with these types of machines, you will need to complete a plant operator ticket course with an accredited provider.

Transport Driver Training (TDT) runs courses from several locations across Victoria. Currently we are running these out of Bendigo and Sale, along with the option to do your training onsite. Speak to our friendly team for more information about course locations to get your plant operator ticket.
