Why train equipment operators with Next Gen equipment simulators? Measure operator performance against machine benchmarks and criteria, during and after training exercises. Instead of someone else providing instruction in the field or yard with no guarantee of consistent training with the operator, the simulator will provide scenarios based on your type of work, operator experience and training objectives.

Why Simulation Trains Learners Faster than Traditional Methods

2020-08-31T19:01:43+00:00August 10th, 2020|Construction Insights, Heavy Equipment Simulators, Heavy Equipment Training, Insights|

Why Simulation Trains Learners Faster than Traditional Methods Why do pilots and physicians train with simulations? Because they can learn better and faster. Pilots were some of the first to use simulators—including the military. Pilots can train in the safety of a virtual environment and never put passengers at risk while learning how to use instruments and navigate the sky. Now doctors and nurses train with simulation—from how to use devices and surgical equipment, to practicing on patient mannequins. Problem solving.  During simulation, learners must think through the material presented, follow instructions and make decisions that will lead to a positive [...]

Training current and future workers in the construction industry. NEXT GEN EQUIPMENT TRAINING is working with the Construction Education Foundation (CEF) here in Colorado to help train current and future workers in the construction industry. Our specialty is heavy equipment operator training using high-tech and cutting edge equipment simulators. Next Gen supplied training scholarships to CEF and we want to share a video that highlights one of the outstanding students that recently attended a training session with the Next Gen instructor at our training facility in Golden, CO.

Simulator Training is the Way to Go

2020-08-31T19:10:35+00:00June 19th, 2020|Heavy Equipment Simulators, Heavy Equipment Training, Insights|

Employee screening — since finding people who are already trained in specific pieces of equipment isn’t always possible, using the simulators as a screening technique for hiring is ideal. Testing potential employees in the simulators to see how they react, their level of coordination and to verify the skills they claim to have, but without putting actual machines or other employees at risk, is a great way to find the right staff.

Improved safety and less risk during training — each piece of equipment is monumentally expensive, to say nothing of the importance of safety for both the operator and the people working in the field with them. Leveraging simulator training is a great opportunity to experience real life situations with zero risk to projects, existing equipment and personnel.

5 Reasons to Use Simulation Training

2020-08-31T19:10:08+00:00June 19th, 2020|Construction Insights, Heavy Equipment Simulators, Heavy Equipment Training|

Simulation training is highly successful when it comes to engaging learners and teaching how to perform tasks, techniques, or processes. The ability to train multiple people in the same way, expose them to real-world situations in the safety of the virtual environment, makes simulation training an efficient and effective choice for organizations.

The costs of taking machines out of production and fuel consumption are immediate realized savings. Because simulations can measure learners’ results, other ROI can be attributed as well. Skill improvements can be shown; and progress can be tracked and tested through simulations. Consider, too, the cost of a mishap, unplanned machine maintenance, or medical bills? Any costs to invest in simulation training can be realized in a better bottom line.

Why Heavy Equipment Simulation? Eliminate Risks…

Simulation allows learners to practice dangerous scenarios that would otherwise be impossible to duplicate in real life. Making a mistake in the virtual world doesn't have the same consequences as real life. Simulations can replicate perilous or risky situations, allowing learners to train and master procedures, so once in the real world they are better prepared for the situation. The risk to hurting themselves, co-workers, job sites or machines are greatly reduced because of knowledge gained during simulations. What would happen if the brakes failed on a haul truck; a loaded bucket was carried too high; or a machine went [...]
