March 19, 2020
The continued spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is evolving day by day and even hour by hour so we feel it is imperative right now to do our part to help prevent the potential spread of this terrible virus.
We had put measures into place like disinfecting the equipment and classroom twice daily, suspending all in classroom theory plus practicing social distancing but we understand the risk of exposure is still too high to ignore.
So for the protection of Rayway staff, students and suppliers we will be suspending all classes and closing our training site starting Friday March 20/20 until further notice.
Any missed training days will be made up by extending the length of student’s contracts.
We will monitor the situation as close as possible and update all students when warranted.
Our office staff will still be available during business hours at 604-546-7600 but will be working remotely.
We hope as you all do that this virus passes quickly so we can all resume our normal activities.

At RAYWAY we cannot train an operator to employment status on any piece of equipment in just “25 hours” of seat time. If you’re considering a career as a heavy equipment operator we always suggest taking our 8 week 320 hour excavator operator course or our 4 week 160 hour loader backhoe course then transfer that knowledge and skill to other pieces of equipment in the future. We also offer 10 week and 12 week combination courses (excavator and loader backhoe). There are more excavator and loader backhoe operator jobs available in the lower mainland of BC than any other machine.
RAYWAY offers the most reasonably priced excavator operator courses in town with the most seat time, in fact RAYWAY courses are about 90% practical and about 10% theory in the classroom.
