Originally presented at Haulage & Loading 2013. Too often, haul truck operator trainees don’t retain enough of the knowledge they learn during training. That can lead to longer on-boarding cycles, lower productivity and potential safety problems in the mine. Blended learning – providing training via multiple modalities using a highly structured, building-block approach – shows promise in addressing this challenge. This paper highlights insights gathered over a three-year period from mines in North America and provides examples of blended learning in action.
