CM Labs Simulations has announced plans to debut new training solutions for organizations, employers, and line worker schools to address workforce safety, training and recruitment issues. The company will showcase the training solutions at Utility Expo 2023, September 26-28, Louisville, Kentucky.
“With the ongoing need for qualified labor, now, more than ever before, CM Labs’ customers need the best possible operator learning outcomes,” said Lisa Barbieri, VP of marketing and strategic relations at CM Labs. “The ultra realism of our simulation and advanced reporting insights will future-proof Utility training programs and recruitment needs by addressing long-term training needs.”
These insights are possible due to the company’s Smart Training Technology. Comprised of proprietary and patented algorithms, the simulation training is based on real data and authentic machine behavior that interact with their environment and materials just as they do in the real world.
“Our simulations ensure training teams have the flexibility to mobilize line workers efficiently. With hot swappable controls, and quick jump starts between all simulated equipment, there is less time away from the worksite and no need to take equipment off contracts,” explained Davis Siu, CM Labs product manager. “The authentic replication of equipment and simulated risky situations means line operators can train for safety, in safety.”
New introductions will include the following.
- Simulation training for Wheeled Excavator: Focuses on situational awareness and reduces safety risks within a dense urban environment. Training Pack includes heavy-duty bucket and narrow tiltrotator with live attachment change exercise.
- Sneak peek of Walkaround Inspection featuring Excavator: Train for this step that directly impacts jobsite safety. Includes training on identifying and spotting issues on equipment.
- Support training programs with Instructor Operator Station: Enables trainers to monitor, assess and engage trainees via tablet or single workstation, personalized learning paths, updated metrics reporting, as well as new administrator functionalities.
