Description: Successful completion of this course will give students the skills and knowledge to operate tractors with and without attached equipment. Working with tractors is an inherently dangerous activity. Individuals who complete this course will be thoroughly instructed in all work health and safety aspects of operating tractors.
Tractor operation on farm accounts for a significant proportion of on farm injuries each year. This training will mitigate the risk associated with those stakeholders operating tractors and attachments. This training will also provide key employability skills for those wishing to enter the industry workforce. Students will be able to apply for jobs within various industries associated with tractor operation with a level of experience that will be of value to employers and give employers confidence in employing these students.
The course will run over one day at our rural campus at Yallah, just south of Wollongong. Students are asked to wear appropriate clothing, including sturdy covered shoes, hat, long pants and covered shoulders.
Our facilities allow us to offer students real hands on experience in a simulated Industry environment building their confidence and skills related to the safe operation of tractors. Specific skills students will learn include, pre start checks, basic tractor maintenance, attaching and detaching powered implements, tractor driving and manoeuvring and safe work habits around tractors including hazard identification and mitigation.
