Agricultural / Amenity Tractor Operations Training

About the course

This course, delivered at either the College or as an option to employers, in the workplace, can be designed to suit the needs of the operator or the type of machinery used. Up to 3 days in duration, the training package can be specific to site, machinery and the experience of the operator for the standard tractor, now used in many applications.

The typical course programme will cover the legal, safety and operator requirements for:

· Safe use of the tractor and machinery

· Operator maintenance

· Operating/Driving safely

· PTO operation

· Trailed implements and trailers

· Three point linkages

· Front end loaders (Optional)

The delivery is flexible enough to allow and incorporate specific training for implements such as gang mowers, applicators and mounted flail arm.
