Heavy Equipment Training


National Association of Heavy Equipment Training Schools (NAHETS)
The roots of NAHETS can be traced back to 1959 when the National Institute for Concrete Construction was founded by Robert Klabacka.

In an effort to standardize the training for heavy equipment operators and heavy
equipment training schools, Nahets seeks to approve heavy equipment training schools throughout the United States. Until NAHETS there has been no oversight in the heavy equipment training industry. Many schools operate without oversight. NAHETS offers standardized testing and heavy equipment skills training oversight.
