Mobile Elevated Work Platform Research
Northwestern Polytechnic has partnered with Serious Labs Inc.
to take virtual training to the next level. NWP is currently undertaking an exciting Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) research project that will examine the effectiveness of simulated training for skill development. We are thrilled to be trialing the MEWP operator training simulator on our Grande Prairie campus and are inviting students to take part in this time limited activity.
Apprenticeship students in their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th period and Computer Systems Technology (CST) Certificate and Diploma students as well as volunteers from other sectors are invited to participate. The research study has been extended, so interested participants still can take part. Students can continue to elevate their skills by participating in three 25-minute simulation sessions. Confidential data related to speed and accuracy will be collected to gauge improvement over time..
The state-of-the art equipment is being temporarily housed in the Trades and Technology Building on Grande Prairie Campus
