Rayway is pleased to announce that after confirming with all of our 2019 graduates from January to December, over 90% are now employed as heavy equipment operators!


The instructor/owner of RAYWAY, Ray Richard is a level-A Heavy Equipment Operator with over 37 years of practical experience, most of those as an owner operator. He completed 3220 of the BC Provincial Instructor Diploma Program with an A+ grade, has been instructing for 9 years and he can teach you things that younger, less-experienced instructors can’t!

The written reviews submitted by every student at the end of each course have always been 100% positive about Ray as an instructor and just a few of the many student’s written comments can be seen on our Testimonials page

A huge percentage of  Rayway graduates go on to become successful heavy equipment operators, many also become owner operators with their own businesses.

We make operator training enjoyable!
