Immersive Technologies’ TrainerAdvantage™ program reaches new heights

29 April, 2010 - Perth Australia

The mining industry’s leading training simulator provider, Immersive Technologies, continues its industry-leading position, reaching a further signifi cant milestone with the successful certification of its 700th participant in its unique simulator program ‘TrainerAdvantage™’.

TrainerAdvantage™ was launched by Immersive Technologies in March 2006 to support the growing demand for its Advanced Equipment (AE) Simulator. The three-level certifi cation program includes comprehensive classroom and hands on sessions working with the AE Simulator under the instruction of an Immersive Technologies’ certified instructor.

Each level is designed to progressively increase the training personnel’s knowledge from basic operation of the simulator to advanced training administration operation.

Peter Templeton, Global Customer Service Manager for Immersive Technologies and coordinator of the TrainerAdvantage™ program, has to date deployed the course in 29 countries around the world.

Templeton said, “In the last four years since the course’s commencement, we have witnessed the mines that have completed the course, significantly increase their level of simulator utilization, understanding and sophistication resulting in improved training programs that are producing safer and more profi table operators.”

Immersive Technologies’ TrainerAdvantage™ program is recognized as the global certification standard for simulator -  trained personnel in the mining and earthmoving industry and provides mines with a means to identify qualifi ed staff when recruiting.

The simulation company expects to see ongoing growth with the program as it continues to deploy high quality, simulation based training solutions around the world.
