You will form your trainees in real-life conditions

Our backhoe loader simulator includes a variety of exercises designed to raise trainees’ awareness about several points of vigilance likely to be encountered, such as:

  • Conformity of machine components when taking up position
  • Vehicle stability
  • Working with reduced visibility
  • Filling the bucket of a transport unit
  • Backfilling, levelling, trenching
  • Safe driving

You will measure and monitor your trainees’ results

During each exercise, our simulator measures trainee’s performance according to a varied range of target skills, including:

  • Knowledge of the machine
  • Precise maneuvering
  • Bucket trajectory following depending on various constraints
  • Stripping with the right angle of attack
  • Respecting digging instructions
  • Levelling accuracy
  • Pipe backfill rate
  • Productivity
  • Getting on and off a carrier safely
  • Spill accuracy

You will analyze their skills development and generate their individual reports and training certificates.

Our simulators are connected directly to our supervision software (GSTA), allowing you to import, store trainee data and export results at any time.
