Bitumen Bulk and Tanker Operator

Bitumen Bulk and Tanker Operator

The operation of bulk bitumen handling and transport equipment (tankers, storage and blending plants) demands a basic knowledge of the properties of bitumen and associated products and adherence to strict safety procedures.

Production is improved if operators have the appropriate advanced knowledge and skill to accurately and safely use plant and equipment. Quality is maintained by bitumen product knowledge, adherence to handling procedures, accurate blend and calculation and careful record keeping. 

Attendance at the Bitumen- Basic Safety course within the last 5 years is a pre-requisite for this course.

This course follows on from the Bitumen- Basic Safety course and a pre-requisite for the Bitumen-Sprayer Operator course.

Who should attend

Persons who have completed their training for bitumen safety awareness and who wish to acquire specialist knowledge for operating road tankers and bitumen plants.

Also, experienced operators who wish to update their knowledge and/or qualifications, will find this course appropriate.

Pre-requisite for attendance

Participants must have completed the Bitumen - Basic Safety course (within the last five years) prior to attending this course.
