Dozer Ticket

A Dozer ticket, obtained through specialised training and certification, signifies proficiency in operating bulldozers—powerful heavy equipment designed for tasks like grading, leveling, and earthmoving. Possessing a bulldozer licence indicates expertise in precise maneuvering and efficient operation of these machines. This qualification opens avenues for various roles within construction, mining, and land development.

Possible Roles

Dozer Operator: As a dozer operator, you'll be responsible for using bulldozers to grade surfaces, level terrain, and move earth and debris on construction sites, mines, and other projects requiring heavy earthmoving.

Mining and Quarrying Operator: In mining and quarry operations, dozer operators assist in extracting minerals, ores, and aggregates. They contribute to moving and piling materials for further processing.

Infrastructure Development Crew Member: Dozer operators contribute to infrastructure development by grading roads, creating building pads, and shaping surfaces for utilities and other infrastructure elements.

Land Clearing and Grubbing Specialist: Dozer operators are instrumental in clearing and preparing land for construction, forestry, or other purposes. They remove trees, vegetation, and obstacles to create a cleared site.

Environmental Rehabilitation Technician: Dozer operators play a role in environmental restoration by reshaping land and restoring habitats affected by construction, mining, or other activities. They assist in erosion control and revegetation efforts.

Dike and Embankment Construction: Operators with Dozer tickets are involved in building dikes, embankments, and levees for flood control and water management projects, ensuring stability and safety.

Potential wages could be in the region of $80,000 to $100,000 per year

Awesome!! After coming from TAFE the training is so much better.
Awesome!! After coming from TAFE the training is so much better. Smaller classes better and more knowledgeable teachers who care about the students and more flexible learning (being able to do most of the work from home). TAFE felt like it was just there to keep apprentices there for as long as possible (spending 8 hours to do 2 hours of work) but here it’s all based around the student, come in for the morning to to finish up units then go back to work for the rest of the day.

Would definitely recommend to others
The staff were very friendly, trainer Carl made it very easy to learn what was needed and helped when I was struggling. Crane operator pat was very kind and made it easy to do the lifts. Amazing operator. Would definitely recommend to others and will be coming back to learn other skills. 👍
