This course is mandatory for all operators in training (OITs) in Ontario. Students that earn over 70% on the final test get a certificate for completing the Entry Level Operator course and are eligible to apply for their OIT certificate, which allows new operators to gain the one-year experience required to become a Class 1 operator.
