See professional training with different eyes

Regular training and education of a team is elementary, especially in such a highly sensitive working area as the environment of a furnace plant. closes the gap between equipment and necessary training – the ABP Virtual Academy, which consists of ABP Virtual Training and ABP Virtual Classroom, is available for all technical areas, at any time, in (almost) any place.

The ABP Virtual Academy comprises the two training courses – ABP Virtual Training and ABP Virtual Classroom.


Virtual classroom

In the ABP Virtual Classroom participants are confronted with a digital twin of the ABP furnace systems. The company brings the digital versions of its furnaces into the virtual classroom. This is useful for everyone who wants to refresh the knowledge of an existing ABP system or if there are plans to introduce new employees. The company says: “A digital session as a kick-off is enormously helpful if customers are planning to modernise, expand or completely rebuild their plant. This way they can experience the topic of product training in a new way. It allows us to explain the functionalities, the correct use of individual device features or even tips and tricks for everyday use”.

The sessions highlight the following:

•           How energy and CO2 can be saved.

•           How to increase the efficiency of a plant.

•           The maintenance possibilities.

•           Details about ABP’s unique coil design.

•           The way in which ABP digitalises furnace plants – and the benefits in terms of security, availability and monitoring through the ABP Intelligence Apps and alarms that will open up for customers.

•           The differences between ABP furnaces and competitor models, also with regard to the differences between cupola and induction furnace.

The ABP Virtual Classroom opens up these and many other possibilities. Explicit product knowledge is delivered, whilst making a saving on travel costs and time, and thanks to the fascinating technology there is also a bit more fun.

The latter of course also applies to the company’s ABP Virtual Training. With it, participants can train and educate their employees on a role-based background in the future. Role-based because training can apply to both everyday use cases and standardised maintenance measures – individually organised according to employee skills and the area of responsibility. This brings more expertise into the company and more safety at every workplace.

Or think of the onboarding of new specialists – never before has a team member been more quickly ready for action, better trained and prepared for the new system that awaits them – through their eyes, in their own language. In the fascinating digital environment, the employee can move freely, train work steps repeatedly and afterwards follow and evaluate them in detail. The fascination of the new technology is one thing, the organisational advantage for the company is another. The customer portal gives customers an overview at any time of the skills each individual employee has, the instructions and certificates they have completed and the training environments they have already used.


Leave the old learning world behind

Training courses in a foreign environment, with simple documents that convey a lot of theory but little practice – belongs to the past says ABP. They argue that the future is to train employees under practically real conditions – simulating everyday working conditions or sending employees in a virtual space in emergency scenarios that can’t be produced in theoretical lessons or in a real environment. They claim there is no better way to prepare employees when it comes to the right work steps or topics such as plant and occupational safety.
