What is an Articulated Haul Truck Ticket?
Unlike a regular/rigid truck, an articulated haul truck is designed to provide greater traction and flexibility and can handle a wider variety of conditions (like narrow/restricted turning) and terrain (uneven, rocky, wet, etc.).
If you’d like to be able to operate an articulated haul truck (also referred to as a dump truck), an employer requires evidence of your competency first.
You can achieve your proof of competency by successfully completing an Articulated Haul Truck Ticket training course at a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) like Kallibr.
During the course, you will receive specific training (including using real industry equipment and site conditions) to provide you with the learning experiences needed for operating an articulated haul truck.
At the end of the course, you will receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment upon completion which can be used as proof of competency with articulated haul trucks with an employer.
Potential Articulated Haul Truck Jobs & Sites You Can Work On
You will have a wide range of choice in terms of roles and industries that use articulated haul trucks and require qualified operators. Here are some examples:
Many mining sites that have inclines and uneven ground have a need for articulated haul truck operators to help load and move materials from the site and keep the area clear.
You may also be required to move valuable mined minerals safely and securely and deal with heavy loads such as excess dirt.
In a quarrying articulated haul truck role, you’ll be responsible for transporting large loads of stone and other heavy materials to and from the job site while navigating across uneven and/or rocky terrain, steep inclines and drops.
It can at times be an unpredictable environment – but one that you’ll have the skills and training to handle safely.
3) Construction & Infrastructure
Lots of construction sites and infrastructure projects require qualified articulated haul truck operators to assist with transporting all kinds of materials (dirt, soil, gravel and so on) around and away from the site.
An Articulated Haul Truck Ticket will give you an advantage in the construction industry and finding skilled roles.
4) Landscaping / Forestry
Large-scale landscaping projects that need large quantities of gravel/dirt moved often hire articulated haul truck operators.
Similarly, the forestry industry relies on dump truck operators to help manoeuvre around tight off-road spaces (i.e., trees, rocks, hills, uneven terrain and so on).
As an added benefit you’ll get to work outside in all kinds of conditions and enjoy nature as your office!
