A Flexible Option that Deploys Wherever You Need it

The portable and compact Vortex Trainer is a full-capability simulator that can run any of our ports training simulations.

Easy to move and set up, the Vortex Trainer allows trainers, health & safety specialists, and terminal managers to deploy training opportunities wherever necessary to comply with hygiene requirements, including remote training. With multiple operators training simultaneously, your roster of qualified employees can also grow while production equipment operates at full tilt.

It is also the ideal option to quickly screen new applicants, and assess whether they have the aptitude & hand-eye coordination required for further training.

Customizable Training and Scoring

The Vortex Trainer touchscreen reports on performance metrics such as moves per hour, unsafe contacts, time elapsed, and more. These metrics roll up into a final score for the training session, using a system you can customize if needed. Instructors can adjust training conditions to simulate night time operations, or inclement weather. They can also add challenges such as spreader malfunctions or terminal traffic near the equipment.

In addition, instructors can comment and generate reports that provide a 360-degree view of trainee progress over time.

Unlimited Exercises

Trainers can adapt port equipment simulator exercises to their requirements, with the Exercise Builder feature that’s built into the Instructor Operating Station.

This feature lets them create unlimited new exercises or updates to existing training exercises, train for prevention of specific incidents, and target training to operator skills needing improvement.

Vortex Trainer Simulator Controls

Robust Hardware Designed for the Demands of the Classroom

The Vortex Trainer is designed with industrial-grade controls, steering wheels, and pedals developed by manufacturers of port equipment.

It’s designed to provide classroom operations you can count on for years of training.
