Looking into getting certified to run excavator so I'am looking at this training school here in B.C. Canada that gives the course it costs 8 grand for 8 weeks. I don't know if its worth it or not maybe it might get me more work right now I don't have enough seat time for the contractors I work for to be put on a job with a machine by myself. If I take this course I'am certified and I can work on municipal jobs where sometime they require a certified operator. It seems you need to get certified ticket to run any machines nowwadays and I don't don't know if its worth it maybe it will give me a edge. I'am getting tired of being a grease monkey and a labourer I want to get some experience running excavator because in a year or two there will be lots of jobs out there when the old guys start retireing.
