Driver Simulation Training
Simulation-based training allows operators to train for both everyday and extraordinary situations. It is not practical to train operators how to react to shifting load, unstable ground, or driving in high winds using real equipment. With simulation-based training, operators can practise difficult tasks and learn instinctively how to react to the unexpected.
Training skilled operators is a major investment. simulators can train apprentices in the basic skills and provide experienced operators with new skills at a fraction of the expense of using actual equipment, but can dramatically reduce the demands on training and production machines. They are also an effective student screening tool.
It is difficult to give apprentices the seat-time they need to understand the equipment. Simulation-based training easily allows students to log extra hours with less supervision and very little cost. it also allows operators to experience new work challenges. Simulators widen the range of operator experience and instil confidence.
Simulators not only help reduce training time, they also produce more efficient operators. Through repeated manoeuvres, new operators acquire crucial skills quickly. Learning on a vortex simulator means they make fewer mistakes and are more efficient on the job.
Maintaining a fleet of heavy equipment is costly. Even with the best training, students make mistakes and cause wear and tear. Simulators reduce maintenance costs and reduce the demand on equipment resources. Through the use of simulators, students understand the controls before they operate the equipment for the first time.
