We want to prepare our trainees to successfully pass the final examination before the IMBiGS commission. The course can be completed either in weekend or daytime mode, depending on the needs of our trainees. During the training course, we want to provide you with theoretical knowledge and the application of machines in practice.   

The classes where we will teach your theoretical knowledge cover a range of topics:  

  • health and safety at work,   
  • The use and operation of backhoe loaders,   
  • general construction,   
  • the various mechanisms and systems of backhoe loaders, 
  • tasks and responsibilities of the operator,

The practical part is achieved through exercises with machines, where students translate their theoretical knowledge into practical skills. Practical classes include exercises with an instructor.

The course is completed by us issuing a certificate of completion of the training course and then taking an examination before a board appointed by IMBiGS.   

What does the examination look like?   

The state exam is made up of two parts.  

The examination begins with a theoretical part, which involves the candidate answering questions on the examination sheet. The participant then moves on to the practical part, in which they must apply their skills in front of a jury. This part of the exam tests the fluency of the activity and the ability to operate the machine in a way that is safe and does not endanger the health and life of the worker. 

Successful completion of the examination results in a qualification certificate and the issue of a working machinery operator's book, which includes the entry "backhoe loaders, all, class three". The qualifications are valid indefinitely. 

Backhoe loaders - characteristics and applications 

The backhoe loader is one of the most popular construction machines. It is mainly used for preparing land for the construction of pavements and cycle paths, cleaning work or carrying out drainage work. The machine is also often used for farm work.  

We have the option of attaching various equipment to the unit. In addition, the unit has hydraulic equipment fitted to allow other tasks to be carried out in addition to digging or lifting.  

The most popular backhoe loader manufacturers are JCB, NEW HOLLAND, CASE, Terex, Kubota and Caterpillar.
