Our training company has been on the market for many years and is an industry leader, so when you choose OSO, you are betting on the highest level of learning. The course is taught by experienced and qualified instructors. This allows you to quickly master the material covered and gain practical skills at a high level. The course provides the necessary theoretical knowledge and teaches you how to operate the machine. Therefore, the course is divided into two parts - theoretical and practical. Theoretical knowledge is imparted during classroom sessions in a training room indicated by us or, according to the customer's preference, in a room prepared by them. It is also possible to organise this part online.

The practical part is nothing more than exercises on the machine. The trainees have the chance to transfer their theoretical knowledge into machine operation skills. We carry out our training on high-quality equipment. 

The training course concludes with the issue of a certification certificate by us. After the course, the participant can take the state examination before the IMBiGS commission, which will only issue a certificate of entitlement if the participant passes the examination.  

What does the state exam look like? 

Authorisations for backhoe loaders are issued by the Institute of Mechanised Construction and Rock Mining in Warsaw (IMBiGS). 

The state exam is taken before a commission appointed by the IMBiGS and consists of two parts - theoretical and practical.  

  1. The theoretical part consists of answering the questions on the examination sheet orally, which are asked by the examiner. 
  2. The practical part allows the candidate to perform the task correctly, as smoothly as possible and in a way that ensures full use of the machine's capacity and safe working conditions. 

After passing the exam, the trainee is issued with a book of work machinery operators, which contains the relevant entry. The certificates issued are valid throughout Poland.
