At the heart of Modal Training is a unique and comprehensive range of training simulators, which are used to deliver innovative training and development solutions for the marine, maritime, offshore, ports, crane, road and logistics sectors.

Our marine, offshore, crane, truck and car simulators enable us to train individuals, develop teams and test processes quickly and cost effectively. Realistic, simulated training environments, which can be made more challenging at the flick of a switch, enable trainees to develop skills and acquire experience that would otherwise take a lifetime to achieve. 

We blend and lock in theory, practice and simulation to fulfil our clients’ objectives, providing a truly immersive experience which is unrivalled within the UK.

It is widely accepted that learning in simulated environments is both safe and cost efficient. The benefits however don’t stop there. Training in simulated environments can also be more structured, accelerated and tailored to meet individual needs.

Kongsberg K-Sim Marine Simulators

We are the first independent training organisation in the UK to offer such a comprehensive range of integrated Kongsberg ship, offshore vessel, engine and control room, HV, DP, radar and VTS simulators. 

Powered by Kongsberg’s latest K-Sim full picture technology, they allow training to be provided on all vessel types from offshore vessels, tugs and tankers, to deep sea vessels and cruise liners.

Working individually or together, these state-of-the art simulators are able to accurately replicate the working environment for a wide range of maritime roles, including bridge crews, navigators, maritime engineers and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) operators.

Crane Simulators

Our sophisticated crane driver simulator training suite, developed by global simulator specialist Offshore Simulator Centre AS (OSC), can be used to train individuals to drive all kinds of cranes, across a wide range of port side, offshore operations and within the construction industry.

The simulators can be used individually or together to allow teams of crane operators, Banksman/Signalman, Slingers/Hookers and offshore vessel operators to train together in a wide range of lifting operations and critical scenarios. The crane simulators can also be used to simulate offshore ship’s bridge and underwater ROV vehicle applications as well as using our crane simulators to support training and performance improvements in the construction industry.

At the heart of our crane driver simulator training suite are two full mission OSC crane simulators. Housed high on a mezzanine floor, in 4-metre domes, each with seven projectors, they are capable of creating incredibly realistic training environments.

Crane type, setting, load type, vessel type (if offshore) and weather conditions can be manipulated to create a tailor-made training environment where skills and experience can be acquired quickly and safely. They also provide a perfect, safe way to test new procedures and processes.

Driving Simulators

Our two state-of-the-art driving simulators, an HGV truck and a BMW MINI, were developed by XPI, a world-leading provider of driver training systems. 

Our simulators are used to help drivers develop the skills and experience they need to operate safely and efficiently on the road. With cutting edge display screens and life-like mechanical features, such as clutch, gear selector and accelerator, our XPI driving simulators deliver a driving experience which is as close to real-life as possible.
