So how do you get a job with the training then?
Employers want experience, there is no way around that. However, it’s not the type of experience people think they want. Most people think that its time driving a truck, loader or other piece of equipment with a ticket attached, that will get them a job. The person that decides who gets hired like the foreman or PM (project manager). They could care less about your equipment tickets. They can’t use them and have to issue their own onsite equipment tickets. If you come at the Foreman or PM with a resume full of equipment tickets. It just screams “I don’t know how your mine works” and those resumes get culled in the first round.
