A handful of new and emerging technologies are transforming how mining equipment operator training is developed and delivered. They enable trainees to retain information better, and become more productive and safe operators of heavy equipment in the mine.

VISTA Training has created a helpful 26-minute multimedia presentation that describes six new and emerging technologies and their potential training applications. It also outlines the advantages and potential shortcomings of each technology. These technologies are:

  • Web-based training / e-learning
  • Inexpensive open-source learning management systems
  • Blended learning platforms
  • PC-based simulation
  • Mobile devices for field delivery of training
  • Augmented reality
