Introduce new career choices

Expose your students to a possible career operating heavy equipment, and set them on the path to high-paying jobs. Our Personal Simulators will provide a learning environment that encourages skills exploration, with students learning in a self-managed way. And having fun along the way will foster a completely new attitude toward learning!

Evaluate operator aptitude

Operating heavy equipment requires a combination of “psycho-motor” ability (manual dexterity), “sensory/perceptual” ability (depth perception), and “cognitive” ability (spatial reasoning). Unfortunately, studies show that up to 30% of training candidates don’t have enough and for that reason, can never become fully proficient.

Our Personal Simulators will let you and your students evaluate this aptitude. This is especially important when training programs are over-subscribed, in order to use your training budget as wisely as you can.

Better prepare students for real seat-time

Training at the controls of real equipment is dangerous, and expensive. Operating costs are high, supervisors must be paid, and mistakes mean equipment that is damaged. And there will always be details that are specific to the particular makes and models that you have.

Instead, our Personal Simulators are “generic” and will teach your students core skills, making it easy to proceed to “hands-on” training on a variety of real equipment

And by preparing your students at the controls of our Personal Simulators, the real seat-time training becomes

  • Safer, because “accidents” now happen at the simulator
  • Better, because students learn to do things right at the simulator, and gain confidence in their operating skills
  • Faster, because your students reach their performance targets sooner
  • Cheaper, thanks to all of the above

In this way, training costs go down, training quality goes up, and graduates are more employable!

Bring new visibility to your training program

Use your Personal Simulator to promote your training program in your community, and improve your recruiting efforts. Just set things up at local events such as job fairs, or at middle schools as part of “out-reach” efforts, and watch the lineups form!
