AUSTRALIA – Immersive Technologies of Perth and ICOM Productions of Calgary have created an exclusive strategic alliance to build on their shared strategy in support of the mining industry.
By combining Immersive Technologies' advanced equipment simulators and professional services, along with ICOM Productions' tailored e-learning and instructor-led training development services, Immersive Technologies can now offer a complete blended learning solution. These solutions will deliver unparalleled training effectiveness and efficiencies, allowing for the dissemination of best practice training packages, with the organizational capabilities to ensure every solution is perfectly tailored to the customer's specific workforce development challenges, according to Immersive Technologies.
By utilizing the expertise of both companies, organizations can increase the ratio of machine operators to skilled trainers, freeing skilled trainers for activities where they add most value. Integrated as part of a tailored blended learning solution, total operator training time and trainer overhead are significantly reduced and effectiveness increased.
Following an extensive formal selection process, Immersive Technologies identified ICOM Productions as the only potential partner that met all the attributes required to deliver results to the mining industry. This selection process included validating ICOM's extensive experience in catering to the mining industry, coupled with its unparalleled level of customer advocacy. Additionally, ICOM Productions has an established suite of e-learning content for heavy equipment including haul trucks, excavators, dozers, graders and virtually every other piece of machinery found at a mine, along with courses covering the entire mining process, with topics including human resources, plant operation and maintenance. ICOM Productions also demonstrated it has the capability and capacity with over 100 dedicated staff and a highly scalable structure, providing the flexibility to grow and develop tailored materials for the entire mining industry.
Immersive Technologies (ImmersiveTechnologies.com) will be exhibiting their state-of-the-art operator training technologies including e-learning, along with a number of complementary products and technologies new to the mining industry later this month at MINExpo, September 24 to 26, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall Stand 8193.
