Haul truck trainer.
I’ve been a haul truck trainer for several years with different companies, everything from 35-ton articulating rock trucks up to 240-ton rigid haul trucks.
I currently work for Peace River Hydro Partnerships for BC Hydro as a trainer, competency assessor and haul truck operator.
I worked in commercial construction for a couple decades and decided it was time for a change from framing and general contracting. An opportunity came up to move from Toronto to BC to try my hand at mining, so I hung up my toolbelt and packed up the cargo trailer, and here I am.
I spend a lot of time at remote fly-in camps, so when it comes to kick back, it’s time to go camping and ride long winding roads on the motorcycle.
HI there Dawn. Very cool Member of the Week feature.
“So, Dawn, where do you park that thing?”
“Wherever I want!”
Way to go girl !!! Hope to work together soon again Cheers
That’s exactly where ? It’s pretty amazing to see the look on a persons face the first time they take the wheel. From sheer terror to “Hey I think I got this” No better feeling to be part of that transition!
I’m an entry level articulated rock truck operator and having a very difficult time getting work. There are lots of opportunities out there but employers want operators with tons of experience. Any suggestions on how you approached employers to give you a chance to earn seat time and graduate to larger trucks?
Oh and congratulations on being Member of the week ! It’s so inspiring to see women succeed in this business.
