The Sojourn High School Vocational Technology Lab is the first program of its kind taking place inside a juvenile detention center.
The Standard in Cost-Effective Simulation for Training Heavy Equipment Operators
Developed in collaboration with leading training professionals, OEMs, and owner/operators, Simlog’s Personal Simulators have been delivering cost-effective heavy equipment operator training to education and industry since 1999.
Today we are the pioneer and global standard in cost-effective training in forestry, mining, construction, and material handling.
The simulator grades trainees as they navigate through common challenges they would experience in the field. Not only does the simulator save the utility in equipment, mishaps and fuel costs, it also opens a door for hundreds of EPWater employees who would like to move up the ranks and train as heavy equipment operators, who are always in demand, said Alan Shubert, Vice President of Operations and Technical Services.
The Dorchester County Career and Technology Center's Heavy Equipment Operation class has students workinga t Simlog Personal Simulators to learn to operate an excavator, a backhoe loader, a bulldozer, and a wheel loader.
With a focus on fostering local industry partnerships to develop new training opportunities, increasing student employability, and answering industry’s need for a qualified workforce, PBSC established a Heavy Equipment Mechanics Program at its Belle Glade Campus incorporating a simulator lab with Simlog’s Personal Simulators.
Eleven middle schools and high schools participate in the program and almost 40,000 total hours of simulator-based learning have been delivered since 2013.View all
"The simulators enable me to put the kids on a forklift safely at an early age. Before, I couldn’t put them on a forklift before 18, and they still did not have any hands-on experience.” - Joshua Hogrefe, TDL Instructor at Bryan High School
