The New and Improved SimScholars™ Curriculum has Launched!

We are excited to announce the launch of the new SimScholars™ curriculum Learning Management System (LMS)! The curriculum is still a one-to-one match to the Cat Simulators systems’ hands-on training exercises; however, the new SimScholars LMS focuses on user-friendly improvements to increase learners’ engagement, leading to faster comprehension and heightened information retention.

Learners have an even more engaging experience with clickable interactions, animated graphics, quiz retakes, and reformatted Learner Sim Guides, which now feature videos and helpful operator tips. Instructors benefit from its time-saving functionality and ease of use, along with an updated Instructor Training Course, user-friendly learner progress tracking, data presentation and more!

If you are using the previous version of SimScholars, we encourage you to transition to the new version. The previous website will remain functional until August 1st, 2024.
