VRSim and Lincoln Tech announce the introduction of SimSpray to six of Lincoln Tech’s campuses across the United States.
Aligning with Lincoln Tech’s innovative approach to education, SimSpray removes barriers from the learning experience by providing experiential training without the traditional materials needed to start a coating project. Lincoln Tech’s programs emphasize a hands-on approach that enables students to gain the skills and expertise needed to jumpstart their careers, making SimSpray their preferred choice for painting and coatings training. “Adding SimSpray’s industry-leading paint simulators is an invaluable enhancement and will be a tremendous benefit to our students training for collision repair careers across the country,” says Chad Nyce, Lincoln Tech’s EVP Chief Innovation Officer. “At Lincoln Tech, we’re constantly striving to find different ways of bringing innovation into our training facilities and classrooms, to ensure our students graduate with up-to-date skills that will help them launch careers as quickly as possible.”
Lincoln Tech’s commitment to work tirelessly to help students succeed on the road to new, rewarding career opportunities benefits from SimSpray’s cutting-edge training technology. SimSpray’s customized Automotive Content Pack is the ideal companion for Lincoln Tech’s highly regarded Collision Repair training program, with customizable paints and materials, an immersive mechanic garage environment, and a selection of automotive parts, including a full-size sedan. Lincoln Tech’s students will be able to encounter many real-life job experiences at a fraction of the cost of comparatively similar live training. “These types of simulators not only help our students build career skills.”
Nyce adds, “they also help improve operating efficiency. Students can hone their skills for painting and finishing without exhausting material supplies. And it’s especially valuable from the perspective of being able to limit our use of ‘project cars’ in the shops. It presents both financial and environmental benefits while only advancing how we deliver this instruction to our students.”
