Local Confederation College campus director Anne Renaud maneuvered dirt with a virtual excavator while demonstrating one of the two simulators the college has acquired for its heavy equipment operator program. With foot pedals and controls hooked up to a computer and large screen, the new equipment allows students to practise different scenarios with different equipment while tracking information on how well they perform these tasks.
