June 17, 2019 – Voith has launched an online learning portal for PaperSchool, its collection of training courses covering all aspects of the paper manufacturing process.

In addition to a wide range of existing training courses, participants can also access personalized training content. Courses from PaperSchool impart knowledge using the latest methods, including computer-assisted training, virtual reality and hands-on training on the actual machines and equipment, to new workers and existing employees who need to update their knowledge.

The training courses are available online, at Voith Training Centers around the world or onsite at a customer’s paper mill. Through the PaperSchool, participants can develop specialized knowledge under the guidance of Voith experts. The training is tailored to a trainee’s specific needs and can impart basic, intermediate and advanced knowledge.

The training courses cover various areas of paper production and stock preparation including maintenance, strategies and methodologies.

One new kind of learning opportunity comes through virtual reality training, an interactive training in a computer-generated environment. For training purposes, this cutting-edge technology makes it possible to create a virtual copy of an entire paper machine or simulate a hazardous production situation without actually endangering the trainee. In addition, virtual reality training can be used to allow trainees to learn and practice various assembly operations before having to perform maintenance on the actual machine.

A support team is available 24/7 to answer any questions a trainee may have.
