Motor Grader Training
This two-day course includes one day of classroom training and one day of hands-on training delivered on-site using the hosting agency's facilities and equipment.
Day one consists of a classroom session that will cover dust-control methods, drainage, repair of frost boils, use of fabric, benefits of good-quality gravel, blading techniques, safe operation, and daily equipment maintenance. Day two includes field training conducted at the hosting agency's road site, where attendees will have the opportunity to operate the equipment and practice what they've learned.
