Spring has sprung and the students in Oswego County BOCES’ Heavy Equipment Maintenance and Operations program are ready to work in the dirt!

The curriculum for the program is aligned with the National Utility Contractors Association, and provides adult education students an opportunity to prepare for careers in the commercial and/or residential construction industry through classroom and hands-on training.

Pictured above are students Leroy Rayner, left, and Dan Kidd participating in one such hands-on exercise. The pair are utilizing a transit level to measure the depth of a path dug by a classmate operating a dozer during a grading and level exercise. For more information about the  program or other programs offered through the Adult Education Department, visit www.OswegoBOCES.org or call 963-4256.
