Ready to implement equipment school-in-a-box.

VISTA Training has developed a comprehensive training curriculum and has implemented vocational training in the United States, Estonia, Kosovo, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine.

VISTA Training offers international vocational and heavy equipment training and certification, via its HeviCert™ Division. HeviCert™ division customers have access to an expanded menu of training resources and expertise. We refer to these services as a complete "school-in-a-box" because we use proven templates to enable a quick start up of a vocational training center.

We offer:

  • vocational training worldwide under the new HeviTrain™ brand name, and

  • certification services under the HeviCert™ brand name.

We have developed a comprehensive training curriculum and has implemented vocational training in the United States, Estonia, Kosovo, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine. Available instructors are certified to train and administer National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) crane operator tests.

HeviTrain Training Services

HeviTrain offers a "vocational school in a box" for equipment operator training. We can handle all of the details, from the needs analysis and design to site selection, curriculum development and admissions. We draw upon a large variety of training materials produced by our parent company, VISTA Training. We also consult on conducting business-to-business arrangements to facilitate continuing education and certification of existing heavy equipment professionals.

Kosovo is one example of our expertise at setting up and running vocational training schools internationally. Selected by USAID to train heavy equipment operators in this Balkan country, HeviCert™ implemented a turn-key heavy equipment operator training program at the Kosovo Electric Cooperative (KEK) training facility in Obliqe. Please contact us so we can share more details.

HeviCert Certification Services

It's one thing to claim to be a professional heavy equipment operator, crane operator, truck driver, civil project foreman, or mechanic; but quite another to have trustworthy, recognized credentials to prove it in many parts of the world. As members of ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Z490 subcommittee and supporters of ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and EU (European Union) specifications; the quality of our testing protocol is paramount. HeviCert heavy machinery certification tests represent much more than a plastic card or a paper certificate.

Our specialty is to arrange for and, if necessary, design rigorous tests using ANSI, ISO and EU standards to evaluate the skill level of individuals in each of these professions. We are aligned with, and promote the use of NCCCO (National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators) for the recognized industry standard in the certification of crane operators. We can also offer assessment and certification of heavy equipment operators, construction truck drivers, redi-mix concrete truck drivers, civil project foreman/supervisor and heavy equipment mechanics.

The certification process is usually set up to be handled by a school, trade association or government entity, but it can also be set up within a company as long as the facilities and staff meet the strict requirements called for in order to be an approved training unit.

In many parts of the world where there is no CDL (Commercial Truck Driver License) we can fulfill the requirements for this as well.
