The Standard in Cost-Effective Simulation
All around the world, the very same kinds of heavy equipment are hard at work
but the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) provide little, if any,
training guidance, especially for entry level operators.
That's why Simlog's Personal Simulators have
become a global standard when it comes to cost-effective
simulator-based training help, with customers all around the world.
The fact is, our products
feature Instructional Designs
developed in collaboration with OEMs, their dealers, and especially
training professionals to ensure that
- the right tasks are simulated
- the simulated work is measured in the right way
And where possible, we also look to operator training standards.
For example, the
International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) has developed some crane operator competency
guidelines that are popular in Europe.
In the United States, the National
Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators
(NCCCO) has developed a Practical Exam, and Simlog's simulation software
was designed to reflect their standardized tasks.
For earth-moving equipment, some programs follow the
National Center for Construction
Education and Research (NCCER)
but their guidelines are more descriptive than prescriptive.
In other words, they present the various kinds of earth-moving equipment
along with operating techniques, but they lack the detail of a "lesson plan".
Here is where the "Instructor Kits" developed by
can help, and they too are used by many training organisations.
Indeed, the curriculum developed by
based on the NCCER guidelines,
includes Simlog simulator-based components and
there are plans to make this curriculum an
American National Standards Institute
Here's the bottom line: since Simlog's founding
in 1999, our products have helped train an estimated 100,000
heavy equipment operators all around the world.
So using our Personal Simulators will help
ensure the success of your operator training curriculum, and maximize
And whether you plan to prepare your own
benchmarks or take advantage of
the benchmarks made available by our customers, choosing Simlog means
- using best practices
- training with confidence
That's why today Simlog is recognized as both the pioneer and the
emerging standard in simulator-based training for heavy equipment
operators in forestry, mining, and construction.
