Competency Based Training

The safe operation of forklifts requires a solid foundation of knowledge and ability. The Vortex forklift simulator training pack is built around skill-specific scenarios designed to demonstrate operator basics, highlight areas for trainee improvement, and present more challenging techniques when the apprentice is ready.

  • Drive and steer the forklift around objects.
  • Maneuver in confined spaces
  • Handle different fragile or sensitive loads without damaging them
  • Load and unload in challenging conditions
  • Avoid collisions

True-to-Life Simulation

The Vortex forklift simulator training pack delivers a true-to-life, stimulating experience based on the behaviour and mechanics of the real machine, including load limits and the ability to topple when improperly handled.

Offering a variety of loads along with instructor-triggered challenges, machine faults, and pedestrian traffic, this training pack offers an environment that moves from developing specific skills to challenging students and accelerating development.

Signal person training station

Signal Person Training Station

CM Labs’ Signal Person Training Station allows novice operators to train together to develop effective teamwork and communications.

While one trainee operates a crane on the Vortex simulator, another works cooperatively within the virtual jobsite, providing signals and guiding the operation through to successful completion via webcam and picture-in-picture display.
