Boom Truck Simulator Training

CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex training simulators, has released its Boom Truck Simulator Training Pack. It is the only simulation-based product that accurately replicates machine instability and the ability to deploy outriggers, resulting in industry-leading training outcomes.

The boom truck typically presents an increased likelihood of training incidents, as it is often the first equipment that inexperienced operators are exposed to. CM Labs’ training pack presents a safer alternative for initial training while mitigating the increased fuel costs and wear and tear that typically result from novice handling.

The boom truck simulator can deploy outriggers to level the equipment before operation and also simulates the swing effect of the load, making it an ideal training tool for utility companies as well as lineworker training schools. Trainees acquire skills including controls familiarization, outrigger deployment, load handling and pole-setting procedures. Dedicated exercises also prepare trainees for CCO and EICA certification exams.
