Hands-On Training at a Distance!

The Biographix Virtual Maintenance Training Center (VMTC) is a complete simulated workshop for transportation training managers who need to train more students, more quickly.

With the Biographix VMTC, training managers can recover expensive workshop time by moving introductory, update and practice sessions into an online portal. Technicians get practical workshop experience and can learn at a time and location more suited to their own schedules.

Biographix creates a VMTC for specific applications from a core set of components, schematics, and test equipment. The VMTC contains common diagnostic tools including multimeters and battery testers, as well as industry-specific equipment such as automotive ScanTools and aircraft engine analyzers. A flexible architecture means that new kinds of simulated equipment and tools can be easily added to meet specific training needs.

From e-ClassroomÂ… to e-Workshop!

E-Learning modules link course curricula in a virtual classroom to practical exercises in an "e-workshop". Students learn the practical details of engine servicing by using virtual tools as if they were in a physical workshop:

  • Components are unplugged and tested,
  • On-screen diagnostic tools are connected with drag-and-drop actions,
  • ScanTool operates with the same UI as a real device,
  • Intelligent Agent technology stops operations considered "dangerous"

Instructors can force engine components to fail and assess a technician's abilities to isolate and identify faults. Technicians can follow standard diagnostic procedures or they can use their own experience and skills to solve engine problems.

Complete and Integrated Solutions

The Virtual Maintenance Training Center is delivered as a total package with the Biographix LMS (Learning Management System). Alternatively, the VMTC integrates seamlessly into an organization's existing LMS.

The VMTC operates with:

  • Desktop computers
  • Handheld (Wireless)
  • Tablet PC
