San Diego, CA -- Hawthorne Cat®, the exclusive Cat equipment dealer in San Diego, the Hawaiian Islands, and the Pacific Region announces new Level 1 Operator Training Courses for 2019 to increase the productivity, reduce the operating costs, and maximize the safety of your business. In a world of constant technological innovations, it is more important than ever for equipment operators to understand current machine systems and applications in order to maximize efficiency and profit. Our programs are specifically created to help experienced operators reach higher levels of proficiency to keep jobsites running on time and on budget.

Hawthorne Cat offers three levels of training courses covering everything from operator foundations to advanced training specific to jobsite needs. Courses are open to all levels of experience from beginners to practiced operators. Each course provides classroom instruction, simulator training, and hands-on experience with the machines, including Backhoe Loaders, Dozers, Excavators, Mini Excavators, Motor Graders, Skid Steer Loaders, and Wheel Loaders. Trainees quickly gain experience in safety, maintenance, controls, and procedures. Students receive a certificate and verification card upon completion.

According to Ron Lyons, Hawthorne Cat Certified Dealer Instructor, Operator Training courses are essential to maintaining profit. “Operators can create unnecessary wear and tear on Cat Machines without the proper training, costing thousands of dollars in repairs and maintenance fees,” says Lyons. “The best operators are efficient, run machines safely, and keep machines running in top condition. Getting certified in these areas through our operator training courses just makes sense.” 

Level 1 Operator Training courses are held monthly. Current course offerings include:

Skid Steer Loaders | January 15, 2019
