Peter Clipping - HEO Program Graduate
I recently finished taking Heavy Equipment Operator Training with Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd. I have taken this training before with another firm and didn’t get all the information I needed. This training was more interesting and gave me more information. I really enjoyed it!
Jennifer Clipping - HEO Program Graduate

Kenton, Craig & Shelly are very understanding instructors. Thank you for teaching me more knowledge and better understanding of the equipment. I learnt better techniques right to the pin point. Thanks!
Nadine Barkman - HEO Program Graduate
This program is an eye opener and teaches you to think ahead. Safety first is essential when it comes to operating heavy equipment. This gave me more hours and taught me better operating techniques. I’m glad i got more hands on experience on all heavy equipment!
Ivan Loonfoot - HEO Program Graduate
I have learned a lot in this training course and now feel ready to find a position operating heavy equipment. I would have liked to spend more time learning because of the instructors/trainers – they are very knowledgeable! I have enjoyed doing the training course very much. Thanks!
James Joseyounen - HEO Program Graduate
Overall this training program is the best start for my future career. I have learned how to operate safely and it taught me well. I would like to thank Craig & Kenton for allowing me to acheive my goals as teh operator. Without them I would not have learned how to operate heavy equipment. You guys are the best trainers that have ever taught! Masi chok nacha. Thank you very much.
Darryl Kkailther - HEO Program Graduate
Best training course I ever took! Good trainers, good communication. Looking forward to start a job in this career now. Thank you Shelly, Kenton & Craig. Good job! Thanks.
Matthew Josie - HEO Program Graduate
I liked this course very much, way better then the simulator training I took for two months. This course is good, better communication and you actually get hands on experience on the heavy equipment. I learned how to cut and operate. I am looking forward to starting a job somewhere now as a Heavy Equipment Operator.
John M. - HEO Program Graduate
I really liked taking this training program. I’ve been running equipment for over 25 years but nowadays if I ask for a job in the mine sites they ask for this training to be completed first. I really enjoyed this course, it helps me find employment and work safe. I learnt lots of new things that I didn’t know, thank you to the trainers!
Brayson B - HEO Program Graduate
I like operating the dozer the best. I got to experience heavy equipment operating, which I am thankful for. I learnt lots on the loader and dozer. This is the first time I have taken any type of training like this, and I would like to continue to learn more. Most importantly I had fun operating and learning. I had an awesome few weeks with these trainers. Hope to see you guys again soon!
RJ - HEO Program Graduate
I really liked this training! The instructors are very great at teaching and hands on training. I learned how to do proper circle checks, I really enjoyed my few weeks with these guys!! They are so experienced they can answer all of my questions!
Shane T - HEO Program Graduate
What I liked the most about this program was driving these pieces of heavy equipment. I have not ever driven these machines before and it was a good experience. The safety was important to learn in the classroom first in order to know how to operate safely. The instructors were amazing, I’ve asked lots of questions and they had answers for everything. At the end, it was fun learning everything!
John D - HEO Program Graduate
I liked how they taught us about controlling the machines. I learned how to control and operate the machines and how to safely drive. The training course was really fun and informative. We got to move snow around the community and work on the roads. I am going to be looking for a job in this field as soon as I receive my certificate!
Jimmy D - HEO Program Graduate
I liked the loader the most. The instructors were awesome!! I’ve learned a lot in this training course, more then I thought I would have. I have not been in a training program before like this one, I would recommend anyone interested in this field to take it. I had a really good time with these guys, the instructors were great!
Audrey Ouskun - HEO Program Graduate
Thank you very much 🙂 I came into this training program knowing very little about the machines. I’ve been working on a construction project and the information taught made a lot more sense and I can relate it back to my worksite. I have confidence now, knowing I can go onto a worksite and use the knowledge that I’ve gained. Really enjoyed the course!
Matthew Laliberty - HEO Program Graduate
I recently took the Heavy Equipment Operator Training Certification Program with Shelly, Craig and Kenton. I loved the course! The content was excellent, informative, and interesting. I really enjoyed learning how to run the machines. The instructors were very informative and experienced!
Jerry J - HEO Program Graduate
I liked and enjoyed every piece of equipment, but most of all I enjoyed operating the loader. There is nothing I didn’t like about this course! I learned how to operate 4 pieces of equipment – dozer, loader, backhoe and grader. Plus I learned from my mistakes. I now know how to use the boom in the backhoe but need to get some more hours to become even better. I have never taken a program like this before, this is my first time. I definitely recommend it! Most of all, I had SO MUCH FUN in this program!
Philip Morris - Councillor, War Lake First Nation
We used Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd. in the fall of 2017 to train 12 community members in Heavy Equipment Operator Training. The trainees learnt a lot, and the training was high quality. They now know how to operate and are not afraid of the big machines. We just need to tell them what to do and they can go and do it. This program focuses a lot on how to properly check and maintain your equipment – this is the main thing! This equipment pays your wage and if its sitting you are not working and making money. Thank you to the band for funding this – we now have knowledgeable, competent and trained operators within our community and we do not need to look elsewhere for workers. This helps keep our community sustainable and proactive. Great job trainers!
Kim Clipping - T & E Coordinator, Sayisi Dene First Nation
The Heavy Equipment Operator Training course was very interesting for all the trainees. Almost all the 12 trainees are now employed in the community within the O & M or Winter Roads department. The few that are not employed have had opportunity for work outside of the community. The training was very applicable and hands on, they learnt a lot. We have requested another HEO training session as there are now more people within the community who would like this opportunity from talking to the others. I would recommend this training to all of the Northern communities – it opens up doors for our people, is cost effective and the best part is the training happens within our community so its more hands on and highly successful.
