C.W. Matthews realized that the best way to have the most safe and efficient heavy equipment operators was to train them in house. But the consistent struggle in training new operators is tying up machines. Because “time is money” it becomes very expensive when machines are not productive. So developing an “in house” apprenticeship program based around a very realistic Cat® Simulator just makes sense. When Simformotion™ developed their online curriculum, SimScholars™ to partner with Cat Simulators, C.W. Matthews was the first company to sign up. The program was a huge success!
