Do I need a license to operate a skid steer?

In Victoria, there is no specific license required to operate a skid steer. Instead, competency in operating a skid steer is typically demonstrated through a unit of competency. To operate a skid steer safely, it is recommended to obtain a bobcat unit of competency from a registered training organization. It is important for each worksite to ensure that operators have proven competency before allowing them to operate a skid steer. By obtaining the appropriate unit of competency, you can demonstrate your skills and meet the requirements for safely operating a skid steer in Victoria.

How much do skid steer operators make?

The average salary for a Skid Steer Operator in Australia is $51 per hour, according to the national average. Please note that this figure is based on data from Glassdoor, which may not represent the specific salary range for skid steer operators in Victoria.
