VISTA ShovelLogic-Hydraulic™ Shovel Training Modules

Computer-based Training Modules Teach Common Tasks

ShovelLogic-Hydraulic™ includes 3 modules of online training that will help you train both new operators and experienced operators in the core tasks of shovel operation:

  • Hydraulic Shovel Introduction

  • Fundamentals

  • Operating Tasks


Task-focused Lessons

Nine lessons containing over three hundred screens of interactive, multimedia-enhanced content provide in-depth training in basic operating principles, best practices and potential problem scenarios.

Task-model Videos

This Logic™ program includes task-model videos that enable the trainee to hear and see what is going on. Not only does the experienced operator talk through what he is doing, but also you can see the task as it unrolls from both inside and outside the cab.

Testing What Trainees Have Learned

Embedded "Check Your Knowledge" quizzes measure what each student has learned allowing field trainers to provide individualized coaching utilizing test results.


Machine-specific Training Modules

VISTA's hydraulic shovel training modules provide a base level of training for new operators. Machine-specific modules are also available to help train your operators on the specific components and controls of the models in your fleet. Contact VISTA Training for more details about these training tools.

Hands-on Tools Reinforce Learning

Numerous job aids depending on the model of the hydraulic shovel. On-the-job support materials, which contain instructions and forms to help instructors assess trainee performance during field training.

ShovelLogic™ OJTs & JOB AIDS

VISTA ShovelLogic-Hydraulic™ On-the-job Training Activities & Job Aids

As trainees learn hydraulic shovel operation skills in the training modules, a series of structured on-the-job activities help them to apply what they have learned. On-the-job activities included in the ShovelLogic-Hydraulic™ curriculum include:

  • Introduction to the Hydraulic Shovel

  • Systems and Components

  • Machine Controls

  • Pre-use Inspection

  • Basic Operation

  • Dig Cycle

  • Efficient Operating Skills

  • Loading

  • Relocating the Machine

Trainers use guides, that enable them to structure these on-the-job activities; they also include space for recording operator assessments and notes. Checklists provide documentation that the trainee has successfully completed each on-the-job exercise.

VISTA ShovelLogic™ On-the-job Training Aids

On-the-job Training Aids Help Operators Retain What They've Learned

VISTA also produces on-the-job training (OJT) aids that provide additional training for specific models of Hydraulic Shovels:

These materials include:

Komatsu-5500-Stops-Diagram from VISTA ShovelLogic training curriculum
Hitachi-EX8000-Stops-Diagram from VISTA ShovelLogic training curriculum

Laminated illustrations of each machine that depicts walk-around inspection points and items to be checked at each location

Controls-Diagram_Komatsu-5500 from VISTA ShovelLogic training curriculum
Controls-Diagram_Komatsu-5500 from VISTA ShovelLogic training curriculum

Laminated illustrations of the operator control panel with call-outs for all controls and status/indicator lights

Laminated OJT materials are designed for durability in rugged mine environments. Hydraulic shovel operators can keep them in the cab and refer to them as needed, long after the training is over. VISTA also can produce on-the-job training (OJT) aids that provide additional training for specific models of hydraulic shovels used at your facility, if needed.
