Safer, more effective operator training

Not all simulators are created equal. But no matter which Vortex simulator you choose, you’ll experience the most effective simulation-based training in the construction industry. This translates to cost savings for training organisations — and safe, responsible, skilled operators on the work site.

Training that fits just right

Vortex simulators’ flexible display options mean you can start small and scale up to full immersion, and swappable controls mean you can use one simulator to train on many equipment types — with the assurance that you can count on your Vortex simulators for years of training, thanks to their rugged, durable construction.

Vortex simulator training packs

A fleet tailored to your needs

Our training packs are designed for deployment on the desktop Vortex Trainer or the full-immersion Vortex Advantage training simulators. They feature self-guiding, progressive learning programs, and best-of-class simulation, from cranes to excavators. With operator metrics captured at every step, they provide the most comprehensive simulator training available on the market.

Eliminate “fake” training

Pretty 3D images are great in movies, but when you’re training operators, overlooking the physics engine can lead to “fake” or negative training. The physics engine inside your simulator matters. It’s what determines whether your loader loses traction, or whether your crane tips. With over 30 man years spent developing our physics engine, CM Labs has simply built more expertise into its simulators than anyone else in the industry.

Success with Vortex simulators

When the Operating Engineers Training Institute of Ontario (OETIO), IUOE Local 793, modernised their training classroom with next-generation Vortex simulators and instructor stations for operator training, the benefits ranged from faster practical training time to increased trainee engagement and more.
