Welcome to the first in our four-part series Your Complete Guide to Construction Equipment Training Simulators.
In this installment, you’ll learn about:
– the factors impacting the costs of traditional training
– the savings that simulation can provide right out of the gate, and
– the timelines you can expect for long-term savings and return on investment (ROI)
Along with ROI considerations, the series Your Complete Guide to Construction Equipment Training Simulators examines the benefits simulation can bring to the entire organisation, profiles of companies that have successfully deployed simulation, and the questions you should ask before buying.
Here’s a preview of what you will learn in Part 1 of Your Complete Guide to Construction Equipment Training Simulators:
The construction industry has seen steady growth over the past decade, fueled by significant building and infrastructure projects. However, it’s no secret that finding skilled crane and heavy equipment operators has become increasingly difficult. For example, a 2017 poll indicated that over 75% of construction firms were having trouble finding skilled equipment operators.
There is no argument that operators need to be thoroughly and comprehensively trained. Training recruits to the level of work site-ready crane and heavy equipment operators is essential for a safe construction industry.
