A backhoe ticket is a nationally recognised unit of competency that’ll give you the skills to operate a backhoe on a construction or building site. Having a backhoe ticket will qualify you for jobs in transport, mining, and agriculture.
A backhoe is a type of earthmoving equipment featuring a digging bucket attached to an articulated arm. Backhoes can be mounted to the back of a tractor or a front loader.
Backhoes are primarily used for earthmoving and excavation applications. The backhoe bucket can be replaced with various attachments to suit the requirements of different jobs.
There is no backhoe licence – it’s a unit of competency and each worksite needs to prove competency in order to operate. Getting a backhoe unit of competency from a registered training organisation ensures you have the skills to safely operate this machinery.
A nationally recognised statement of attainment will be issued to students on successful completion of the course along with a wallet sized card.
