Global Operator Challenge

 

 

We’re on a quest to find the best — the best equipment operator in the world. Think you have what it takes behind the controls? Sign up for a local Operator Challenge event in 2022 and show off your agility, speed and accuracy in a series of skills-based tests. Local winners move on to the regional finals, and from there to the Global Operator Challenge finals at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas, where Caterpillar will crown one operator world champion. Will it be you?


 

SEE WHAT YOU MISSED AT THE LAST OPERATOR CHALLENGE

More than 10,000 operators from 30 countries competed in the first-ever Global Operator Challenge in 2019-2020 — with Canadian Jaus Neigum taking home the "best in the world" title at the finals held at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. Take a look back at the competition.
