Air Brake Inspection

In addition to the dump trucks, there is a lot of heavy equipment that has Air Brakes. The Wheel Loader that you will train on here at the Deep Creek Construction School training facility is one of them. The Air Brake Inspections must be done every day as part of the Start-Up-Procedures.

The Air Brake Inspection include

1. The Low Pressure Warning Signals Test.

2. The compressor Test.

3. The Governor Test.

4. A Leak Test.

NOTE: We do not do on a daily basis the Rolling Stop Test on heavy equipment. That test requires it to be done on level ground.

For Training, Wages, Jobs & Enrollment


We intend to train and certify you on 10 pieces of heavy equipment, what we refer to as “horizontal” or “yellow” equipment. We also intend to train and certify you in 10 different site skills.
