Through our parent company Komatsu Australia, we have more than 50 years’ experience delivering OEM familiarisation training on Komatsu equipment, as well as introductory or site induction training for new operators and employees.
On-site Machine Operator Proficiency Training
Operators who have achieved core competencies – whether through their industry experience or through formal training – can achieve measurable productivity and safety benefits through Komatsu Training Academy Proficiency Training.
The measurable improvements achieved in operator proficiency through Komatsu Training Academy packages are tracked via Komatsu’s state–of-the-art ICT (information and communications technology) based remote monitoring systems, with results stored online for ready access by customers. 
Measuring machine performance and productivity is critical to performance improvement and is often overlooked as an area where serious net gains can be made by customers.
In addition, Komatsu Training Academy can develop and tailor any operator training program to suit customers’ specific requirements. Contact us to discuss how we can customise your training to meet your specific business objectives.
