Investing in Cat® MineStar™ products is just the first step in building business value. Utilizing Cat MineStar to its full potential can help enhance safety, reduce costs, improve productivity and boost efficiency. That’s why the MineStar team provides a comprehensive suite of training opportunities that allows users to build skills from foundational to advanced through web-based, instructor-led (virtual or in-person), virtual reality, and on-the-job courses.

Training is based on mine site and dealership job roles, ensuring users are trained to be effective and efficient in their daily work. Training spans the MineStar suite of products—Fleet, Terrain, Detect, Health, and Command—and can be scheduled in combination or individually to allow your operations the flexibility and scalability needed to be more productive, efficient and safe.

Types of training

Web-Based Training

Also called eLearning, this method is the most portable and allows users to learn via videos, interactive digital courses and other media types on a desktop, laptop or mobile device. Web-based training is usually foundational-level content.
 

Instructor-Led Training

Instructor-led courses allow users to learn with others in a classroom environment with a subject matter expert and standardized materials. Our instructor-led training consists of interactive system exercises to equip users for real-world application of the products.
 

Simulation

Simulation training takes the classroom one step further and allows users to apply hands-on learning in an environment that mimics mine control operations. This type of instruction allows users to make mistakes and learn the system without having a negative impact on production.
 

Virtual Reality

VR technology takes training to the next level by immersing learners in a realistic simulated environment which can be set up in any safe and convenient location. VR training minimizes the amount of time equipment is pulled from production for use in training without sacrificing a learner’s ability to learn through hands-on methods. 
 

On-The-Job / Practical

To gain familiarity with site specific procedures, we encourage on-the-job shadowing after completing training so that users can apply what they’ve learned to real-world applications at their site.
