About the Training

ISOSWO is sponsoring and subsidizing a 3-day heavy equipment training event hosted by Metro Waste Authority at Metro Park East Landfill in Mitchellville, Iowa. This training is offered to new operators, or those operators seeking refresher training on machine safety and operation.

The training will be held May 14, 15 and 16, 2019.

Training Details: The event will be taught by instructors from Associated Training Services (ATS), based out of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. ATS has been training heavy equipment operators for over fifty years. Their expertise has helped thousands of equipment operators be safer and more productive. ATS has contracted with organizations throughout the country to deliver specialized curricula on all types of earth moving, excavation and material handling equipment.  ATS is providing ISOSWO with face to face training (hands-on and classroom) and curriculum that is being customized to meet our solid waste operator’s specific needs.  

The training will provide participants with hands-on opportunity in dozers; haul trucks; excavators, and a landfill compactor. Loaner machines are being provided by Ziegler CAT and John Deere, and Metro Waste Authority. Participants will also receive classroom instruction from ATS, on basic safety principles of heavy equipment operation. Brian Seals, WCSC and Laura Routh, CRLCSWA will lead sessions on landfill safety, efficiency, and best practices for operators. There will be time for networking and onsite tours. 

Interested in attending, applications are due April 13. Apply today!
