Training Courses 

MAKers are diverse, and that diversity extends to the ways we learn. While some of us prefer to meticulously read the user manual before exploring software, others prefer to jump right in and get their hands dirty. We want to create the best experience for everyone, so we offer classes that can get you off the ground and executing plans with an instructor through online webinars and onsite training in Cambridge. Whatever your experience level, usage type, or time constraints, we have flexible training that is curated specifically for your needs.

Some examples include:

  • End users can learn how to create and run scenarios in VR-Forces and VR-Engage.

  • System administrators can develop configurations in the MAK RTI  for a complicated network topologies.

  • Developers can explore the VR-Forces,  VR-Vantage, or VR-Link toolkits and APIs with the guidance of MAK experts.

We offers both on-line, and on-site, training courses to help you get the most out of MAK products.

  • Online courses, presented by our talented engineering staff, provide hands-on instruction to familiarize you with the product’s capabilities and user interfaces. We schedule these courses periodically and send announcements to people who  register their topics of interest in their online profile.

  • On-site courses go deep and cover all the critical aspects of the product(s). Courses can be held at our facility or yours.

Custom courses can be scheduled at your convenience. We can provide standardized courses, or as is commonly requested, coursework can be customized to address the requirements of a particular program, project, or functional group.

Upcoming Classes:

Topic: VR-Forces Training (On-site)

Date:   SEPTEMBER 10-14
Week-long class designed to guide students through VR-Forces. Please contact your sales rep to sign up.

Topic: VR-Forces 104 - Simulating Humans Characters & Activity in VR-Forces (Webinar)

Date:   SEPTEMBER 25 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
Webinar will focus on how VR-Forces can be used to simulate individual human characters and their associated behaviors and actions. The webinar will also cover how these individuals can be aggregated into a group and associated group behaviors.

Topic: VR-Forces 103 - Customizing the GUI (Webinar)

Date:   SEPTEMBER 26 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
Webinar will focus on understanding the configuration options to tailor the VRF GUI to meet your specific needs. class designed to guide students through VR-Forces.

Topic: VR-Forces 105 - Using the Aggregate-level Model in VR-Forces Training (Webinar)

Date:   SEPTEMBER 27 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Webinar will focus on the aggregate-level simulation model, typically used to model the operational tempo of large area/theater level missions overseen by command staff level officers. This model can be used to support both training staff officers, as well as stimulating Command and Control systems. The webinar will highlight differences from the entity-level model and discuss why one might choose one model vs. another.

Webinar will provide an introduction and overview to the features of SensorFX. SensorFX is a plug-in module for VR-Vantage to generate EO, IR, and NVG scenes. It models the physics of light energy as it is reflected and emitted from surfaces in the scene and transmitted through the atmosphere and into a sensing device.
