Operators Learn How to Run Equipment on Simulators.

July 30, 2015

Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa, has teamed up with Murphy Tractor and the Iowa AGC’s Work Force Development Committee to bring 6 simulators that will travel the state of Iowa to help in recruiting purposes. This will not only help in bringing attention to the programs at Hawkeye Community College, but also expose students to the many careers in heavy construction.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Nebraska Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) has also utilized a simulator for operator training. The Nebraska LTAP purchased a motor-grader simulator and they have mounted it in an enclosed trailer to travel throughout the state for motor-grader operator training.

John Deere’s Operator Training Simulators are a cost-effective, safe, and efficient way to train new operators in a risk-free environment. The customer-driven training simulators feature real-world situations, job-site hazards, safety violations, hand signals, equipment damage, budget-based scoring, and replica machine controls. Safely and effectively train operators while avoiding fuel costs, equipment damage, risk to personnel, machine downtime, weather restrictions, and emissions.
