Accredited Loading Shovel Training FAQs
Do I Need A License To Operate A Loading Shovel?
No. You do not need a loading shovel licence. In fact, they don’t exist. There are, however, several steps you will need to do to safely and legally be able to operate a loading shovel, including meeting some basic requirements and completing training. You can learn more about the requirements in our guide, “Do You Need a Forklift Licence? Spoiler: It Doesn’t Exist!”.
Where Are HL Training’s Loading Shovel Courses Delivered?
We can provide our training courses nationwide at a worksite of your choice. Alternatively, you can visit our Bristol training centre, which is complete with four training rooms and all the facilities required by our accrediting bodies.
How Often Are Refresher Courses Required?
Refresher courses are not a legal requirement, as your accredited certificate does not expire. However, HSE recommends refresher courses are carried out every 3 – 5 years.
