One Student + One Truck + One Training
= Our Nationally Accredited Training
When talking about a dump truck, people are generally referring to a Rigid Haul Truck, which is the most used machine in mining. Despite their huge size, dump trucks are relatively easy to operate and often serve as a great stepping stone into a mining career. At My Solution Training, we offer a comprehensive, one on one dump truck course for those ready to increase their skills and start working in mining.
Many people like the idea of driving trucks; however, they may be held back by several factors, including fear and self-doubt. The friendly team at My Solution Training have over 75 years of combined mining experience and have trained people of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. It doesn’t matter what you look like, how old you are, or what your previous career was; if you have the passion and drive to get a job in mining then don’t let fear stop you from achieving your goal!

Who Can Undertake Dump Truck Training?
One of the many benefits with the mining industry is that it does not discriminate. Our dump truck driver training courses reflect this and more.

It is also required that our students have a basic understanding of English and comprehension skills worthy enough to complete the written component of the haul truck course. We encourage everyone to apply for this training. If you are new to the country or perhaps feel that your grasp of the English language is a barrier, please contact our team today on 1300 414 341 for more information.

Why Do The Dump Truck Training?
Completing the My Solution Training haul truck course can help increase your chances of gaining employment, showing employers that you have the basic skills needed to get in and operate machinery. Many employers also associate training with you having the necessary drive and motivation to succeed in a mining career.
Aside from giving yourself the upper hand amongst a sea of applicants, many people choose to complete dump truck training because:
- The ratio of dump trucks to other machinery can be as much as 50:1 – meaning there are more job opportunities available.
- As the dump truck is primarily used to transport material, they aren’t overly technical to operate.
- Dump trucks are automatic.
- While they are large, dump trucks can only be driven at a maximum speed of 40km/hr on site.
- Dump trucks are operated in a strictly controlled environment, making them much easier to operate than driving vehicles on a busy road with uncontrolled traffic.
The course prepares you for bigger machinery, allowing you to hone in your skills without being overwhelmed by the size of the truck.
