Diggerman Training is a registered training organisation based on the Sunshine Coast which offers a range of training courses for those already in the construction industry looking for license upgrades, training for new skills, or for those wanting to gain employment in the construction industry.

We are a registered training organisation that specialises in the tickets and certifications needed to safely operate machinery with high levels of skill. We also provide other associated training courses and certifications required by the construction industry, including civil construction certifications, safety, OH&S, first-aid, dogging, confined spaces and working at heights.

What makes Diggerman Training stand out from other RTO’s on the Sunshine Coast is the fact that they are a well-established operational earthmoving company, Diggerman Earthmoving, which offers practical hands-on experience operating machinery in real life job situations for students during their training.  For those students who excel at their operator training courses, Diggerman Earthmoving is always on the look out for above average students seeking employment, and also has a long association in the industry with other companies looking for talented, committed and hard-working machine operators. So not only do you get the training you are seeking to elevate your career options, you also gain access to our enormous network of clients through the Diggerman Earthmoving enterprise.

Licenced machine operators needing to refresh their skills, or to renew expiring operator tickets will be assessed by industry experts and assisted through the licencing requirements by assessors chosen for their experience as well as their teaching abilities.

The training facilities at Diggerman are new and clean, and based in the industrial area just west of Coolum Beach. Just across the road is a large cafe servicing the area so there is no need to travel for smoko breaks. We pride ourselves on providing a safe, comfortable and state-of-the-art operator training facility, all based only blocks from the beach!

We've put a number of our staff through Diggerman's training courses and they come out more highly skilled, more confident and more efficient. I can't recommend their facility highly enough.
