Rail Training Suite
"Heartwood Sims are used in every class for Conductors, Engineers, & mechanics, and loving them. New hires are leaving training with better experience…it’s so easy to use simulators, even technologically challenged people have no problems. It’s been accepted by everyone, all the way up to our president Gary Yelvington”Director, Rail OperationsConrad Yelvington Distributors
"The ability to practice within the virtual environment is leading towards better knowledge retention and fewer mistakes. Employees retain, understand more of what they’re learning and remember safety protocols. We are training one-third of transportation employees each year and a version specific to mechanical employees. Every three years we’ll cycle through the whole population – every transportation employee will be trained on it."Senior Director of Operations TrainingCSX
“While railroading remains a hands-on industry at its core, technology continues to drive innovation and improvements. The inclusion of simulation in our training, both initial and periodic, allows us to challenge our workforce to demonstrate their skills in fully customizable scenarios that meet or exceed CFR 243 requirements. The technology allows us to objectively measure their performance on each task, provide immediate feedback, and electronically capture completion of the training for record keeping."Manager Technical Training, TransportationNorfolk Southern
