Canadian Forces use virtual training aids to train engineers

by Liam Britten

The Canadian Forces School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (CFSEME) will soon be using the latest technology to study a piece of equipment they’ve used for almost a century: electrical generators.

NGRAIN, a Vancouver company specializing in 3D technologies, has delivered the 5 KW Power Generator Virtual Task Trainer to the Canadian Forces so that engineers can learn troubleshooting, maintenance and repair skills in a fully simulated environment. Because recruits are able to learn many of their skills in a no-risk, virtual environment, physical training units are much less likely to be damaged as engineers learn their skills.

“The level of detail and ability to support dual-language training is an incredible asset to our instructors,” said Paul Hallett of the CFSEME. “To be able to view the internal components and functions of the generator provides students with knowledge that until now could only be conceptualized.”
