  • Three-Day Dozer Course

    This course is an intensive professional dozer operator training program that’s based on competency and delivered in a controlled environment at Major Training’s simulated worksites.

    The course offers:

    • Everything you need to earn your dozer competency from start to finish
    • Three days of competency-based training and assessment from our knowledgeable and experienced team
    • Intensive theoretical and practical training conducted in our classroom facility at Yatala or Morayfield over two days. Theory will be presented through videos, live demonstrations, and clear instructions delivered by our trainers.
    • One day of practical assessment at our facility where you will operate a dozer
    • A practical skills logbook for you to record your experiences during the course
    • Courses run Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday from 6:30am until 3.00pm.

    Students are trained to a level suitable to achieve all elements of the dozer competency. We achieve this with our exceptional trainers and assessors and quality training materials, including a logbook, training plan, full assessment, training manual and heavy machinery for you to operate – all provided.


  • A detailed training plan developed from our knowledge of the earthmoving industry
  • Practical training recorded in a practical skills logbook
  • Written and practical assessments conducted on completion of formal training
  • All training materials, machinery and a hi-vis vest are provided.

After the completion of training, our assessments include a closed book written theory test and a comprehensive practical test using our machinery.

A nationally recognised statement of attainment will be issued to students on successful completion of the course.


This course is suitable for students who are currently employed or seeking employment in the construction industry.

To enrol in the dozer course, students must:

  • Be able to read and write basic English
  • Pass a language, literacy and numeracy assessment (LLN)
  • Be mechanically minded with an interest in operating heavy machinery

The cost of the three-day course is $1125, which includes all learning and assessment resources, access to the machinery and entry into the facility.

  • What does a dozer operator do?

    Dozer operators ensure the safe and effective use of a dozer onsite. From destruction work to the movement of materials (e.g. pushing large quantities of soil), a dozer operator’s tasks can vary depending on the needs of the job. They also manage site safety, making sure heavy machine is used correctly, avoids hazards, and doesn’t pose any risks.

  • How do I get a dozer licence?

    To receive a dozer competency, you’ll need to prove that you can operate a dozer correctly and safely in real-life situations. You can do this by undertaking dozer operator training that includes an assessment upon completion. If deemed competent in the assessment, you’ll obtain a nationally recognised statement of attainment which can be used to demonstrate competency.

  • I already know how to operate a dozer, but I don’t have certification. What can I do?

    If you have previous operating experience of two years or more, you may be eligible to achieve recognition of your competency. By providing us with employment evidence or old logbooks, training plans, and an interstate or overseas dozer licence, we can conduct a practical assessment leading to a nationally recognised statement of attainment. Speak to us to find out more.

  • I don’t feel like three days will be enough for me. Are there extended learning options?

    Yes. We can provide you with additional days of learning and practical experience onsite. You can also take your practical skills logbook away to gain work experience in the field. When you feel ready and your logbook has been endorsed by your workplace supervisor, we can conduct a final assessment. If successful, we’ll issue you with a nationally recognised statement of attainment.
