Courses range from a one day course for refresher training for candidates who currently hold a certificate, two day conversion course for certificate holders wishing to add an additional machine, three day course for operators who have experience but never held a certificate and a five day course for novice operators.


There is a theory and practical test to prove the candidates knowledge and competence of understanding the machine and safe operations.
