CM Labs introduces collaborative learning solution for crawler crane operator training

CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, today announced the release of a unique collaborative learning solution that engages two trainees simultaneously.

It can be deployed in multiple configurations, with operators working at any combination of CM Labs simulators, including the motion-enabled Vortex Advantage simulator, the desktop Vortex Edge Plus simulator, or the Instructor Operating Station (IOS) .
