Hello my name is Greg Reeder

  • Equipment Operator
  • Animation & Video Producer
For years I have had the opportunity to design training programs, curriculum and visual training tools.
My real passion is in teaching and training, from one on one to hundreds at a time.

I have also operated helicopters and heavy equipment, all over Canada.

I enjoy learning, and having a wide range of career and life experiences has helped me to design from a learner's point of view.

I have had to translate many manuals and it has bothered me how un-simple textbooks are written.

I have designed curriculum and built Power Point, video and animated training  programs for government, universities, industry, training schools and private companies.

Below is a list of some of the courses I have built.
I built these courses using pictures, animation, videos and interactive game show style exams that I produced.

Equipment training:

  • Machine basics, maintenance and safety
  • Training modules for excavator, tracked dozer, motor grader, frontend loader, backhoe, skid steer, articulated rock truck
  • Loading & transporting equipment
  • Using GPS, maps and laser levels
  • Planning, Excavating techniques, trenching, shoring, grade stakes
  • WCB and OHS rules as well as jobsite safety

Driver training:

  • Defensive driving courses for car, corporate class 5 and commercial class 3,2 and 1
  • Hauling freight and load security
  • Fuel smart driving
  • National Safety Code
  • Air Brakes training
  • Motorcycle course day 1 and 2

Other courses:

  • Accident investigation course
  • Introduction to the internet and websites
  • Social media: your business, group or cause
  • Introduction to finances: mutual funds, portfolios, using seg. funds and universal life for passing wealth and investing, pros cons and dangers of leverage and borrowing to invest

Online training:

Built a training website so students can access pictures, videos, animation and step by step learning tutorials from their computer or smart phone
