Mobile Crane Simulator Training Pack

Also known as the Rough-Terrain Crane Simulator Training Pack

Progressive learning for safe lifting operations, improved mobile crane productivity, and real crane operator skills

Mobile Crane Simulator Training Pack


The Mobile Crane Simulator Training Pack is a complete training tool. It covers the entire lift process, from lift plans to controls familiarization to complex lifts, such as lifting steel structures, working in buildings, and work around power lines.

The training pack provides in-depth assessment capabilities and progressive learning exercises for both novices and experienced mobile crane operators.

It’s a powerful tool for every stage of the workforce development cycle, from operator assessment and training to cross-skilling.

Training pack features

CM Labs is the only simulator on the market that accurately replicates machine stability—providing real-world training opportunities to help reduce the risk of accidents and improve operator efficiency.

Crew Training with Tandem Lift Simulation

The Training Pack’s tandem lift simulation teaches the lead mobile operator how to safely and efficiently maneuver a steel pipe load in tandem with a secondary crane, operated from another simulator connected on the network.

Crew training can be extended with the Signal Person Training Station, which allows a trainee to guide the operation, within a challenging virtual job site that includes power lines and job site personnel.

Assess Mobile Crane Operator Readiness

The Mobile Crane Simulator exercises are designed to gradually build skills, and objectively assess operators. Trainers get insight into operators’ performance and abilities after each session, making the Mobile Crane Simulator Training Pack a centerpiece of your workforce development cycle.

In addition, trainers have the ability to fully evaluate operator readiness with a new Mobile Crane Skills Assessment exercise. It covers complex lifting techniques, such as performing a blind lift, recovering from a load pendulum, and girder lifts.”

Training Outcomes

The Simulator Training Pack features progressive learning exercises—from beginner to advanced—designed to gradually build operator skill and confidence:

Novices learn the fundamentals load charts, complex lifts, and selecting and using different parts-of-line. They’ll also learn the fundamentals of safety systems including anti-2-block, outrigger placement, and operating in poor weather conditions.

Track Operator progress

Vortex simulators track all operating metrics during training exercises and roll them up into a single score that updates in real-time. Organizations can customize this scoring system to take their most important operating criteria into consideration.

This gives instructors a benchmark for objectively assessing operators after every training session, in order to meet training objectives more rapidly.
