“The dynamic nature of the coking process demands continuous adjustments by the operators, something they get a feel for over time, so it’s not necessarily the best situation for new operator training” said Joshi. “GSE’s tools provide a safe environment for training and eliminate the risk for the plant owner-operator.”Both the GSE EnVision tutorial and simulation are equipped with their own individual learning management system (LMS), TutAdmin and SimAdmin, respectively, which allows instructors to register trainees and monitor their performance during the education process. The tutorial is available in eight languages and as a web-based application. The simulation is available in Instructor-Trainee and Standalone versions.
