Heavy Construction Equipment Training for Operators

Heavy Construction Equipment Simulation Training

Training new operators can be challenging — and the cost of training can be substantial. However, organizations that deploy simulators for training are seeing their savings add up rapidly, as well as long-term financial and safety benefits … all much sooner than you might expect.

What benefits are industry leaders seeing with simulation-based training?

With simulation training, construction businesses are lowering the risk of damage, injuries, and fatalities. And before training even begins, construction crane and heavy equipment simulators can be used to screen trainees and make sure they have the coordination and skills to perform.

But you may be surprised to learn that the benefits of simulation extend far beyond operator training and assessment, and can span the entire organisation, from HR to Operations to Marketing and more.


“When we received an advanced manufacturing grant from Governor Baker, AET was a great resource to guide us through the process of design, equipment selection, and installation. Our program is now equipped with equipment that will provide our students with cutting edge technology which will prepare them for college and career readiness.”

Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School

“AET Labs has been our savior in creating the Blackstone Valley Education Hub (BV Ed Hub)! The Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce was fortunate enough to receive a large Work Skills Capital Grant from the MA Department of Higher Ed to create fabrication, design and computer labs. AET Labs provided us with the expertise and know-how we needed to successfully reach our goals. . . At the end of the project we got rave reviews from the community, our students, teachers, schools and our legislators.”
