Simulator training has proven to be the most effective means for teaching and qualifying plant operators, as well as providing the foundation for ongoing operator training. TRAX training tools are designed to simplify the training process by allowing the instructor to concentrate on the trainee, rather than the simulation.
TRAX Tutorial Lessons
TRAX Tutorial Lessons are customized videos demonstrating specific plant operations. The tutorial can cover any plant function: how to put a condensate system in service, how to tie on a generator, etc. The lessons are designed to supplement training materials and allow operators to practice specific tasks with or without a trainer.
Simulator Operations Training
With every simulator, TRAX includes a Simulator Operations Training class to teach simulator instructors how to use the ProTRAX instructor station features for the most effective training. For customers with existing simulators, TRAX can deliver this training at your facility to refresh your skills on the simulator.
Advanced Simulator Operations Training
TRAX offers an additional one-week course that builds upon the lessons learned during the Simulator Operations Training course to further prepare instructors to conduct simulator training independently. A TRAX trainer will work directly with the site instructor during simulator operator training, helping the instructor develop comfort and familiarity with the ProTRAX Instructor Station and the skills needed to conduct operator training.
The Engineer Training program is designed for engineers who will be modifying or building models using the ProTRAX model-building program (GCPARM). This class covers:
How module interconnections are made
Model configuration, generation, and execution
Diagnostics during model building
At the end of this class, the student will be able to build models, modify existing models, and update the software system.
Simulator Training Lesson Plans
Comprised of lessons based on plant-specific operating scenarios, TRAX’s Simulator Training Lesson Plan (STLP) curriculum is custom-designed to ensure that control room operators gain proficiency in the safe and efficient operation of the unit. Each lesson is intended to develop the specific knowledge and skills appropriate for an operator at a particular experience level.
Instructor Lesson Plans guide the instructor during classroom and simulator training to focus on specific learning objectives. Lesson plans include instructor activities such as role-playing and operating local equipment, and provide suggested questions to ask and important topics to discuss. Also included are the expected student actions during various training activities.
