PTS offers three training programs, each only three weeks in length. The two levels of heavy equipment training teach you how to operate 10 different types of heavy construction equipment. Additionally, a three-week training program is provided for mobile hydraulic telescopic cranes. Each course is a 120-hour commitment requiring students to stay local until completion of the course.

Financial assistance is available for eligible individuals interested in training through PTS. We offer scholarships to students along with options for financing. It’s our mission to make receiving training as easy and affordable as we can. There are also state and federal grants that you may be able to use to pay for training. Some of these programs include the Trade Adjustment Act (TAA), Tribal Education (BIA), WIOA Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, Vocational Rehabilitation and Veteran’s Benefits (VA), Department of Workforce Development, and Displaced Workers, Displaced Farmers.
