CM Labs’ unparalleled operator training offers inspections that aren’t just a checklist, but a guided learning and benchmarking tool.

Ready to augment apprentice engagement and maximize your training capabilities?

"Why would you use a simulator to do a walkaround inspection? Efficiency. The first time an inspection is demonstrated to a new trainee you need to monopolize an on-site machine for a lengthy time period as the instructor proceeds with the explanations and demonstrations of the inspection. The simulator can easily do most of that legwork, freeing up that on-site machine you would ordinarily need to do the inspection…"

By focusing on the ‘why’ behind actions through teachable moments, Walkaround Inspection engages operators in a deeper learning experience that truly cements lessons. Exercises provide a solid overview of what operators will cover during a real walkaround inspection—paving the way for on-the-job effectiveness and safety. This hands-on approach not only enhances understanding but also streamlines the learning process, setting the stage for many other benefits, such as shortened training times, improved training outcomes, and the ability to objectively measure progress.

Quickly Transition Between Equipment Checks

Transitioning between inspection pre-use checks is designed to be quick and seamless, allowing organizations to minimize downtime and maximize learning.

Reduce Equipment Wear & Tear

While building positive habits for pre-use inspections, reduce the need for physical equipment and offsite training. Save costs with preventative maintenance when operators spot malfunctions early through inspections.
