Mission and History

Mission Statement

We prepare our students for the world of heavy equipment by providing them with the essential skills of operating various machines with a focus on safety, maintenance, and industry knowledge. With the inclusion of work experience as part of our program, our graduates are ready to begin fulfilling careers as heavy equipment operators.

Our History

Since 1964, our program at Malaspina College, now Vancouver Island University, has trained students in heavy equipment operation and engaged them in significant community projects on Vancouver Island.
