Bobcat Novice/Reset


Skid Steer Loader (Bobcat) training would be delivered to you on your own site; you would need to supply the machine/equipment. Basic training must be conducted off the job, however during later stages of the training some work tasks may be able to be incorporated once candidates have reached an acceptable standard of safe operation. Every endeavour is taken to minimise the impact on normal working operations and ensure that training is relevant and industry specific.


This course qualifies you to operate any skid steer loader from any manufacturer. Operate on any site in the South Africa with permission of the person responsible for site H & S. Use any attachment for which you receive training. It does not qualify you to instruct others in the use of skid steer loaders. Supervise anyone who has not received formal training and qualifications in the use of skid steer loaders.

You will learn the following :

Accident causes and prevention
Hydraulic Systems & controls
Legal duties
Loader capacities
Loader stability
Operators safety code
Overload warning devices
PPE requirements
Pre-use safety checks
Safe operating practices
Weight estimation

Materials Provided:
A workbook and supplementary handouts are provided as reference material for the written test. 
A theoretical Examination and Practical Test will follow each Module. To ensure understanding you must maintain a 75% Pass mark for each module. 
Participants are able to repeat the course twice if the pass mark is not achieved. Supplemental materials necessary to complete this course can be accessed online.
 This Bobcat Novice/Reset training is an in-class program that can be completed in 5 Days. Upon completion, operators are awarded a Bobcat Novice/Reset certification.
What is a course with limited availability?
In addition to our published and online courses, there are several other courses that we can run with flexible options. Select the course of your choice and register your interest to attend when dates become available.


In terms of the law, all Operators who apply for Re-certifications need to be in possession of a Novice course certificate. Please be aware that certificates need to be renewed within three months after date expiry.

Accredited Training believes that training should yield benefits, far more substantial than just “a Certificate”. We offer a free service that will remind all Companies or private Operators that their certificates need to be renewed.
