This multi-business simulator is the first of its kind to be acquired by the CFPP. It allows employees to complete their training by practising on different types of machinery: STS gantries, RTGs, forklift trucks, mobile cranes, heavy goods, etc. It also provides a safe learning environment with rapid control.
For the trainers, the simulator will speed up training and reduce equipment downtime by 30%. It will also become possible to change the work situations according to the typical weather conditions (rain, wind, fog, etc.) that can affect manoeuvres on the ground.
“We are pleased to introduce this driving simulator to the CFPP, which will enable us to provide a new training programme. This virtual reality device brings real added value and offers many advantages by preparing trainees for all the situations they may encounter in the course of their work.”, said Maryam AÏDARA, Director of the Pan-African port training centre.
