    Jack Davidson, president of B.C. Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association, said the impetus for developing HEO training standards was the skills shortage in the industry that began to manifest itself about five years ago.

    “B.C. Roadbuilders determined the industry needed to set out a clear career path for young heavy equipment operators to follow,” he said.

    Because there were no training standards in place, B.C. Roadbuilders, through its human resources department, worked with the ITA to establish programs and to start marketing them.

    Red Seal apprenticeship is the next step in bringing standardized HEO training to as many operators in Canada as possible.

    Davidson said Red Seal certification has a number of benefits.

    “It means heavy equipment operator is recognized as a legitimate trade,” he said.

    “It also means Red Seal is recognized as the way to get a trade ticket and it gives certified operators inter-provincial mobility.”

    Davidson said the heavy equipment industry also benefits from having a national standard that can be used as a recruiting tool...
