Stephenson Equipment Takes Their Training to the Next Level with ITI's Cutting Edge Technology

When Stephenson Equipment Inc. (SEI) first began exploring the idea of expanding their CCO Prep Courses they had a basic requirement - they needed additional crane seat availability at their Harrisburg, Pennsylvania training facility. What ITI was able to bring to the table however, proved to address a number of needs that SEI didn't know could be solved by a single company. 

Once SEI's instructors had the opportunity to try out the realistic and immersive experience that is ITI VR, they were hooked and we can see why!


The ITI VR Crane Simulator desktop unit makes it so that not only can SEI add the crane seat training time they need, they now also have the ability to take it with them anywhere they go! ITI's VR Cane Simulator desktop unit offers easy set up and tear down, making it so SEI can provide CCO training at any one of their facilities, as well as at client sites. Best yet, SEI is able to provide students with true-to-life crane operating experience without incurring the wear and cost of running a crane for hours on end. 


Not only did SEI upgrade their training by integrating ITI's cutting edge VR technology, they also enhanced their learning management system via our latest offering, the ITI Learning Hub. Through the Learning Hub, Stephenson is now capable of creating customized learning paths and branded content to provide their students with a learning experience like no other.
