Become a confident, competent excavator operatorIf you want to upskill yourself and work with an excavator, our simulator is the next best thing to actually sitting in the cab and operating a real machine.
The software used for the training offers a ‘true to life’ experience to develop a full range of foundation operation skills in a safe and controlled environment. Drivers follow set of carefully developed exercises in areas such as maintenance, driving, maneuvering, safety and special handling, all in a full-scale training tool.
Excavator driver training
Excavator simulator exercises can be configured for trench digging, pipe laying, battering and dump truck loading in a variety of soil types, weather conditions, day/ night operations, and emergency situations.
Thanks to the rotatable multi displays, the operator’s seat on a motion platform, and interchangeable controls, joysticks and pedals all in a realistic high-definition graphic environment, the BeSafe fully immersive simulator provides a completely realistic machine experience.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced operator, the simulator has a variety of training scenarios to suit your capabilities. The training simulator can be used by experienced operators to refresh and sharpen their skills or can train beginners, helping to develop correct digging and loading techniques and propulsion methods. The skills obtained in the proficient use of this machine also mean you can adjust to other types of earthmoving equipment. This is a great starting point if you are wanting your tracks (T) endorsements and do not have the current experience.
Training for excavator operators
Book a session on our simulator to build your hours in the seat. During the training you will have full access to all tasks within the simulator to ensure you have the opportunity to refine the particular skill you want to focus on.
Driver training and evaluation tools
Excavator simulators provide an excellent training and evaluation tool. Together with adherence to safety procedures, correct equipment handling techniques and response to emergency situations and failures, the excavator operator’s dig, swing, dump and return phases can be monitored and recorded. Combine that with the BeSafe Training instructor’s after-action review, you have a complete training and evaluation system.
