Keep up with today's challenges

Maintaining the knowledge and skill set of personnel can be challenging. With a wide range of equipment and services to maintain and manage, it becomes difficult for workers to stay on top of everything and to pick up all the needed skills on the job. New digital connected services and machines make it even harder to keep pace.

A shortage of skilled labor is also contributing to the challenge. A high proportion of experienced knowledgeable staff are exiting the workforce or the industry. With demand for these skilled workers already higher than the current supply, a skills gap within the industry is rapidly developing.

Remote site locations and pandemic related travel restrictions add more barriers to personnel training. A combination of live and online training is becoming a necessity. Nonetheless, today’s business environment demands to get more from less and knowledge plays a key role in achieving this.  

Metso Academy is here to help you overcome these challenges by providing needed knowledge and training.

Theory training

Theory training

Classroom-based course which covers basic operation principles, operator interface, safe use of Metso equipment as well as after-sales support. This course is intended for operators, supervisors, maintenance personnel, and technical specialists, and can also be used as a refresher course for personnel who already possess a basic knowledge of equipment.

Practical training

Practical training

In addition to the theory training, the practical course connects the classroom based information to practical experience.The course provides operators and technical specialists with practical knowledge on running, maintaining, and troubleshooting Metso equipment. Practical training can include demonstrations, simulations and machine side training.

Join training courses delivered by our experienced team of in-house certified experts and build your competence on Metso equipment to secure the efficient operation and maintenance.

The mining and aggregates industries are under increased pressure to stay on top of maintenance needs for a broad range of equipment. Operators also need to know how to both operate the equipment, as well as understand how to get the best performance out of their producing assets. However, when operating teams do not have the necessary training programs in place, they can run into major challenges. Prolonged or excessive start up times for new equipment or processes, weaker usage of inputs and resources, unexpected production losses, unstable processes and unplanned equipment downtime can all result from site personnel not having access to the right kind of training programs.

Metso Geminex™ operator training simulator (OTS) is an advanced learning simulator tool for the effective training of both new and experienced minerals processing operators. It provides a safe and controlled environment to learn all the necessary skills for safe, effective operation of modern process control systems. Geminex™ OTS is available for all concentrator plant and hydrometallurgy processing areas, including grinding, flotation, dewatering, solvent extraction & electrowinning, carbon in leach (CIL), carbon in pulp (CIP) and pressure oxidation. It is available in different configurations, either generuic or more custom applications


Generic Geminex™ OTS

Generic Geminex™ OTS is a dynamic simulation of a generic minerals processing or hydrometallurgical circuit to help understand the use of the equipment and process dynamics with professional training material. This is a great and cost-efficient way for plant operators to learn about individual process areas in hydrometallurgical areas or concentrator plants plants. Generic OTS systems are fast and easy to set up for customers, available online and for a full concentrator and hydrometallurgical plants package.

Plant specific Geminex™ OTS

If a customer wants to take the next step and tailor the simulator training to their exact plant layout, then a plant specific OTS is the great option. It is a dynamic simulation of plant specific processing circuits with realistic Process Control System (PCS) interface to help understand the plant dynamics under variable conditions. Plant operators can practice on a simulation of their own plant and have hands-on experience running their circuits or full plant process in a safe, controlled and risk-free environment. This option requires some pre-work to configure the simulator to match the customers circuit or plant.
