“This is an exciting project for GlobalSim and we look forward to partnering with HRSA to provide these simulators” remarks Brad Ball, GlobalSim’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The HRSA simulators will feature 4K displays and virtual reality integrated into a full cabin simulator. Upon completion they’ll be among the finest crane simulators in the world.”

We will have the ability to conduct simulated training of real life situations and have a better trained operator in a shorter time. We’ll also use the simulators in our recertification programs, thus cutting the time and costs of our training.”
