Project Heavy Duty 2014

The 24th Project Heavy Duty took place April 21, 22 and May 19, 20, 21.

For the past 23 years, Project Heavy Duty has been exposing area students to the world of heavy equipment operation and the many career opportunities available to pursue.

Project Heavy Duty provides students the opportunity to operate a broad range of industrial machinery such as skidders, loaders, feller-bunchers, gravel trucks, excavators, back-hoes, graders, earth moving machinery, and bob-cats. Heavy equipment operation is an integral component of the forestry & mining sector and Project Heavy Duty strives to provide students critically important hands-on and relevant exposure.

The five-day career awareness opportunity for 30 senior secondary school students also provided access to heavy duty mechanics, welders, partspersons, and auctioneers.

A provincially-recognized career-awareness project, Project Heavy Duty could not be succesful without the continued support of community organizations, local business, industry, and dedicated volunteers.
