FMTC takes revolutionary step in VR training using XVR Simulation

03 June 2017

FMTC and XVR simulation are pleased to announce a newly formed educational partnership agreement to further expand the FMTC safety courses with the simulation training capabilities of XVR Simulation. CEO Joost Beerthuis and Director of Maritime Development Tim Lodder of XVR Simulation joined the management team of FMTC consisting of Rob Bruinsma, Erwin Roos and Joeri van de Watering to sign the agreement at the FMTC safety training centre near Schiphol Airport.


With the agreement, FMTC aims to expand their existing courses of theoretical and practical training with virtual reality training. The implementation of virtual reality to the training curriculum provides FMTC with a blended learning environment, offering even more than the course standard. FMTC believes in innovation and new techniques to improve our learning environment during the courses on our training facilities.


XVR Simulation will train a team of instructors at FMTC. Together with the FMTC instructors, XVR Simulation will be able to further expand their scenario database with maritime, offshore and industry-specific scenarios. The partnership with FMTC also allows XVR Simulation to further expand their maritime market.

Tim Lodder (XVR Simulation) is excited about the newly formed partnership: “Not only does XVR Simulation share a lot of core values with FMTC like flexibility and customer focus, this partnership also gives us an edge towards our future maritime market development.”

Rob Bruinsma (FMTC) is optimistic about the future: “As training centre we strongly believe in the combination of virtual training and real life training. Learning by practising as much as possible is our motto. We aim to be fully operational with XVR Simulation after the summer.”
