Vista Offers Web-based Dozer Training

July 20, 2012

Vista Training has added a crawler dozer training module to its Silver Series of web-deliverable operator training programs.

Focused on helping operators to work proficiently and safely in all types of ground conditions, "Dozer–Basic Operation & Safety," has three key areas:

Lesson 1 - Components: In this lesson, trainees learn the major blade and track components of the track dozer and how they contribute to pushing material.

Lesson 2 - Controls: Before trainees can learn how to perform common tasks with a dozer, they must first understand the controls of the machine and their function. This lesson also describes typical working conditions and basic operating techniques of the modern dozer.

Lesson 3 - Design and application: One of the keys to using a dozer productively is effective project management - planning how you're going to approach your push and return cycles for maximum efficiency and productivity. This lesson digs deeper into ground conditions, and how they affect productivity, as well as the different types of dozer operating modes, including cutting, ripping and carrying material.

The dozer module is a one-hour web-based, self-directed course. For more information, visit
