Training collaboration with Redpath Australia

Edvirt Redpath

We are pleased to announce a training collaboration with Redpath Australia to provide Edvirt’s sprayed concrete operator training courses to their operators. The first training sessions have been conducted at Redpath Australia’s head office in Brisbane during March and April. Additional training courses will be rolled out across a number of Redpath’s Australian projects.

The training consists of a theory and a simulator module and will be integrated into Redpath’s training organisation. Upon satisfactory completion of the course, operators receive the ESCOT™ certificate.

First E4 Stockholm Bypass Sprayed Concrete theory course performed

Shotcrete Theory Course

Edvirt is accredited by the Swedish Transport Administration to run sprayed concrete courses and issue the certificate "Sprutning med sprutbetong inom Trafikverket". The certificate is required for operators that work underground with sprayed concrete in the E4 Stockholm Bypass project. 20 persons attended the first course that was held at SIKA's facilities in Stockholm last week. The course included theory, laboratory tests and simulation training. 

The next course is scheduled for 2-5th of May. If you want to know more or register, please go to http://www.edvirt.com/sprayed-concrete-e4-sthlm-bypas or contact eric.odkrans@edvirt.com

Simulator training for WestConnex's M4 East and New M5 shotcrete operators

This January, Edvirt started an Australian subsidiary (Edvirt Australia Pty Ltd) following growing demand in the Australian market.

We are now happy to announce a training collaboration between WestConnex M4 East, WestConnex New M5 and Edvirt. Starting in September, shotcrete operators in the project will go through training sessions comprising online, theoretical, simulator and practical modules. The training is nationally recognised and will also be offered to other interested customers.

For more information, please read this press release or contact christian.reich@edvirt.com.

 

E4 Stockholm Bypass sprayed concrete operator certification

Source: www.trafikverket.se

All sprayed concrete operators working in the E4 Stockholm Bypass project are obligated to be project certified. The certification is issued by Trafikverket (The Swedish Transport Administration) and includes both theoretical and practical training and assessment. The practical part is performed on Edvirt's 3D Shotcrete Simulator™ at Trafikverket's facilities in Kista, Stockholm.

All operators have to go through and pass 17 assignments on the simulator. The training course is scheduled through Edvirt. Having operators working in the project without a valid certification is accounted as a contract breach between the hired contractor and Trafikverket.

If you want more information, please read this press release or contact eric.odkrans@edvirt.com.

Training and certification with Peace River Hydro Partners in Canada

In September Edvirt delivered it's first training with the newly implemented SPM500 machine, following the recent collaboration with Putzmeister. To ensure that site engineers have the know-how and that shotcrete operators meet the designated standards, PRHP is working with Edvirt to issue the internal certification Nozzleman Training Certificate to its employees. The certificate is based on the theory and training offered for the ESCOT™ certificate as well as the EFNARC certification.

Edvirt took part of a sprayed concrete workshop arranged by BASF for Oyu Tolgoi in Mongolia between 4-7 April. The around 40 participants from OT and Red Path got to learn about sprayed concrete though theoretical, practical and simulator sessions.

A big congratulations to Joshua Watson who won the virtual spraying competition, and was awarded the Master Sprayer Competition Trophy.

Training in the U.S.

At the end of August, Edvirt performed a spray concrete training week for Barrick Gold together with BASF. Approx. 20 people got the chance to try the 3D Shotcrete Simulator™ with the included course package.

If you would like your organization to get to try out virtual spray concrete training or if you want to order a 5 days long training course including theory and simulator training, please contact adrian.hedstrom@edvirt.com
