this “gondola lift school” developed by POMA

3D immersive gondola lift simulator

It allows operators to quickly grasp the right everyday practices such as emergency situations, even before the ropeway system is commissioned. The immersive technology means learning is 10 times faster and more efficient.

Since 2016, bodies such as the French association of ski areas, AFPA and the Vaucanson technical college have been using POMA teaching materials to deliver their courses on ropeway transport systems.

Depuis 2016 des organismes tels que l’association des Domaines Skiables de France, l’AFPA et le lycée professionnel de Vaucanson s’appuient sur les outils pédagogiques POMA pour délivrer leurs formations dans le transport par câble


They talk about it

UPILOT® is my favourite training tool! I am a facilitator, and I just guide the learners because they are following a self-training approach, with fun and interactive tools at their disposal, e-learning courses and procedure coaches in a 3D environment that allows participants to almost fully memorise their working environment.

They talk about it

Today, thanks to our network of qualified trainers, our training offer is growing! We try to find the right profile for the country where the ropeway system is installed. A service that is growing and that works very well based on the exchange of skills and knowledge.

They talk about it

The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc uses UPILOT® to complement the in-situ training of its employees. The 3D simulator allows training without shutting down a system, and thus offers greater flexibility in training. The teams work in a less stressful, more comfortable environment. It is a perfect example of what digital technology can contribute to the operational aspect: teaching, peace of mind and autonomy
