Fast Training, Safe Futures: ROI-Driven Paths for Next-Gen Operators

Discover How Simulation Training Can Lead To a 40% Boost in Productivity

In today’s dynamic construction landscape, the triple challenge of recruitment, retention, and sustainability is increasingly affecting profitability. A recent survey by AGC stated that 88% of companies are struggling to find qualified workers, with 66% percent of projects impacted by these shortages.

Simulation training for heavy equipment is one method contractors are using to train the workers of tomorrow and retrain and expand the skillsets of their existing workers, while simultaneously slashing training time, driving down equipment and training costs and enabling statistics-based training.

In this 30-minute virtual tech-talk hosted in collaboration with Construction Executive magazine, Samantha DeAlmeida Roman, Associated Builders and Contractors from ABC New Jersey Chapter, Jason Salmon, Heavy Equipment Master Trainer from Gerdau, and Christa Fairchild, Product Marketing Manager at CM-Labs, will discuss the advantage of a risk-free, simulation-based environment where operators can hone their skills, boosting productivity and ensuring safety remains a priority.
