CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, has issued a new software release for its construction simulator training packs. This new release is designed to boost trainee engagement by featuring heightened visuals, greater training immersion and increased learning retention.
The new graphics provide a level of depth and realism that, in conjunction with CM Labs’ industry-leading machine simulation, further reduces the gap between classroom training and the worksite, the company said.
The new release can be experienced across CM Labs’ fleet of construction and forestry training packs. The lifting simulations include the luffing tower crane, flat-top tower crane, crawler crane, rough terrain crane, boom truck and forklift. The earthmoving simulations consist of the excavator, dozer, wheel loader, backhoe and motor grader. The forester and harvester make up the forestry simulation training packs.
“The current boom in construction jobs is highlighting the importance of closing the skills gap,” said Lisa Barbieri, vice president of marketing & product management, CM Labs. “That’s why we are focused on providing the most immersive learning experience to deliver the world’s best training outcomes.”
