Vortex simulator tower crane training module overview

Training pack overview

With the Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack, operators learn the fundamentals of standard top-slewing tower crane work, including load charts, blind lifts, and 2-part/4-part-of-line operation. They’ll also learn the fundamentals of safety systems including anti-2-block, lower limit switch, and trolley limit switch.

Vortex simulator tower crane training module: Operator performance metrics

performance management

The Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack gives trainers objective insight into operator performance and abilities. It measures operator performance metrics such as:

  • Tasks completed and time
  • Pendulums and load or hook collisions
  • Rough load handling
  • Certification test violations
Vortex simulator tower crane training module: Equipment simulation


The Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack provides the most realistic simulation-based training available. This includes:

  • Crane boom and jib bending/torqueing
  • Stability and overloading risks
  • Cable collisions with worksite obstructions and the crane boom
  • Pendulums, snags, and collisions

The Tower Crane Simulator Training Pack is a valid simulation for training Tower Crane and Flat Top Tower Crane operators.
