5DT makes operators safer, more productive and less destructive by using advanced training tools that have been optimized on mine sites around the world since 1993.

5DT has a well-established mining, construction and trucking knowledge base. We have spent a lot of time underground, in surface mines, on construction sites and on the road, interacting with real operators and real vehicles and machines.

We also work closely with the world’s best training departments and schools to refine our methodologies, products and learning material.

5DT works very closely with its customers. This approach has led to unprecedented growth for 5DT.

We look forward to working with you in the near future.
