When working with heavy equipment, it is essential to be familiar with the machinery and its applications. The Cat® Machine Product Line Module, a free Technicians for Africa online course provided by Caterpillar as part of their University training program, is a superb way to gain knowledge of Cat machines and how they are used.
Both experienced technicians and vocational students will find Caterpillar training very useful in giving a solid foundation when it comes to understanding the heavy equipment that they work with every day. This free online training course provides an overview of all Cat machines such as engines, trucks, electronics and agricultural equipment, as well as their configurations and applications. Students will be shown how the equipment works and how to select and configure tools and machines that are appropriate for the job at hand.
Having completed this module of Caterpillar training, students will be able to identify different machines in the Caterpillar product line as well as describe what industries and uses they are suited for. This sound knowledge of the applicable tools and machines helps technicians perform better and increases both productivity and employability.
Technicians for Africa provides free Caterpillar training through an intensive 18 module program to be completed in 3 to 6 months. Sponsored by Caterpillar – a global leader in heavy equipment – the curriculum covers many topics, from an overview of machinery to assembly, and even the foundations of hydraulics, electricity, and engines.
