CM Labs now Includes Walkaround Inspection in Intellia Training Packs for Heavy Equipment

Expanded training capabilities create unparalleled learning opportunities for safer operations.

MONTREAL, QC, March 19, 2023 — CM Labs Simulations, leading vendor for simulation-based training in the construction, utilities, and ports industries, today announced the launch of Walkaround Inspection for Earthmoving Training Packs. Through this release, CM Labs continues to expand its comprehensive family of products that address key industry issues such as operator safety, sustainability, productivity, and workforce management.

CM Labs’ virtual Walkaround Inspection is an additional exercise included with CM Labs’ most used simulated earthmoving equipment training packs. It addresses the need for training operators on safety protocols and daily pre-use inspections. The exercise includes hints and detailed information at each inspection checkpoint during the evaluation. Walkaround Inspection is included on the Backhoe, Dozer, Tracked Excavator, and Wheel Loader Training Packs.

Davis Sieu, product manager for CM Labs earthmoving training, states, “Operators-in-training need more than just a checklist—they need instruction and support on how best to identify equipment maintenance issues before they risk becoming safety and productivity concerns. CM Labs scoring and randomized evaluation means trainees can continue to refine skills while companies can benchmark safety progress. Our Walkaround Inspection extends training capabilities with unparalleled learning opportunities for safer operations.”

As with all exercises, scores from Walkaround Inspection are managed in CM Labs training management Intellia Instructor – providing insights and a deeper understanding of operator skills than exercise scores alone. Instructors can monitor via tablet both classroom and individual student progress. Intellia Instructor allows students to complete lessons at their own pace, while trainers can support those who need it most. Transitioning walkaround inspections between each simulated equipment is quick and seamless, allowing organizations to minimize downtime and maximize learning.

Virtual Walkaround Inspection is the perfect tool to use when training to identify equipment failures that are unsafe and impractical to replicate on real equipment. CM Labs simulations offer learning opportunities to train on heavy equipment safely, improve learning retention and confidence, taking apprentice training out of the classroom and into a dynamic realistic environment.
