PRESS RELEASE: After seeing successful results from the initial deployment of two IM360 simulator platforms, the company has placed additional orders to increase its training capacity, including professional services to support the technology integration.

"We are committed to investing in quality training that can be applied across new projects. We use the local workforce and the ability to train them using simulators has proven to be a vital part of onboarding and continual improvement.," says Scott Miller, AUMS Group EHS&T manager.

AUMS provides a structured training programme utilising simulator technology to optimise the training process for inexperienced heavy equipment operators. This structured approach extends to their Train the Trainer program where in mutual collaboration with Immersive Technologies, an annual TrainerAdvantage training session was conducted over a two week period at the Immersive Technologies head office in Perth.

"Training is important to AUMS and they have shown how that dedication can equate to dollars. We are proud to see the results they have achieved and honored with their continued investment," says Simon Vellianitis, Immersive Technologies, regional manager.
