Company Summary

We build sophisticated eLearning courses using 3D virtual reality & interactivity for the diesel technician market. Other than trade schools and OEM programs there is virtually no training available to the 280,000 diesel techs (over 1 million worldwide). New Tier 4 emissions systems and electronics require substantial upgrades to our shrinking technician workforce's knowledge base. The industry is desperate for effective training programs.
