Our courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful heavy equipment and truck drivers, ensuring their safety and the safety of those around them.

With accumulated experience of over 100 years in the Construction & Transportation industries, our staff and instructors have “real” transport and construction industry know-how.

Canada Heavy Equipment College takes great pride in being active members of both the Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada (WTFC) and the Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO). As a forward-thinking institution, CHEC recognizes the importance of fostering diversity and inclusion within the trucking industry. By aligning with the WTFC, the college demonstrates its commitment to supporting women in trucking, encouraging their participation, and providing equal opportunities for success. Simultaneously, Our affiliation with the TTSAO underscores its dedication to upholding high standards in truck training and ensuring that students receive top-notch education and preparation for a rewarding career in heavy equipment operation and tractor-trailer truck driving. Through these memberships, Canada Heavy Equipment College reinforces its role as a leader in the industry, contributing to the advancement and professionalism of the trucking and heavy equipment sectors in Canada.

The Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada is a network of women created for women to empower, expand and retain employment of — and shift attitudes about — women in the industry and beyond. This includes supporting the industry with issues around training, safety, career progression, education, mentoring and more.

The Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario is comprised of numerous Registered Private Vocational Schools and other organizations which specialize in truck driver training. One of the TTSAO’s principle goals is ensuring that all drivers entering the field maintain a minimum level of knowledge and ability. These standards should be met for not only the needs of employers, but also with the safety of the general public in mind.

How It All Began…

The owner (Dave Gow) was frustrated trying to hire good heavy equipment operators for his Construction company. As a construction company owner Dave believed that he would be able to start a school that would produce operators of the calibre that he and others in the industry were looking for. His goal/dream is to produce graduates who are job ready, can operate safely and find work doing what they have always wanted to do.
