Excavator Simulator Training Pack

Provide excavator operators with the skills required for safe, efficient excavating, loading, and trenching operations.

Excavator Simulator Training Pack


The Excavator Simulator Training Pack features the world’s first commercial application of CM Labs’ innovative approach to soil simulation. This realism immerses trainees in a virtual environment that promotes rapid skills acquisition — from excavating and trenching, to trailer loading, safety corridor management, working with Trimble® Earthworks Grade Control Platform, and more.

With built-in scoring, exercises that encourage self-directed learning, and challenges that encourage trainees to use their own operating judgment, the Excavator Simulation Training Pack enables trainees to develop a sense of initiative and responsibility that transfers to the work site.

Practice Complex Excavator Operations

Immerse operators in challenging environments that allow them to develop specific, complex skills, such as pipe placement and load handling. Operators learn controls and basic digging techniques in a safe and controlled environment. The Training Pack also lets operators practice advanced excavator skills, such as cleaning trenches, leveling, and practicing jump turns.

Advance operator training with Add-on Modules

Operators sometimes need to bridge the skills gap – quickly and safely – to operate multi-use machinery and take new roles on the job site. Leverage these Add-on Modules as a cost-effective solution for cross-skill training, assessing new equipment, and working on team tasks, while tracking fuel efficiency and safety progress.

Dense Urban Environment Training

The Excavator Training Pack features progressive learning exercises—from beginner to advanced—designed to teach skills and build confidence:

Operators Performance

The Training Pack provides objective measurements of operator performance and abilities. These performance metrics are rolled up into a score that can be customised to take your most important criteria into consideration, including:

Add-On Training Modules

  1. Operator Efficiency Tools – Master precise grade control with Trimble Earthworks® integration. Training on advanced construction technology allows operators of all experience levels to be better prepared for today’s jobsite.
  2. Specialized Techniques
    • Grapple: practice: practice controls familiarization, make a quick coupler attachment change, excel at precise maneuvering, grapple control, object sorting, and operation efficiency.
    • 360° Titlrotator bucket: controls familiarization, make a quick coupler attachment change, and efficiently dig the various elements of a V-ditch.
  3. Crew Training with Articulated Dump Truck Simulation – team-based communication skills make an expert operator most effective. Collaborative training can be difficult and dangerous to reproduce with real equipment, especially for new trainees. Trainees can train together on tandem exercise with an additional Vortex Simulator.
