XMC-401 Training Platform


Fast-paced, fun, and effective training
Organizations in the healthcare, manufacturing, and service industries used a fast-paced, fun, and memorable training from Applied IE. The
XMC-401 training platform was designed and engineered by Applied IE as an effective hands-on learning platform. It maximizes participation and engagement by immersing participants to experience the lesson plan in a near-realistic production assembly simulation.


The XMC-401 training workshop can be delivered in the following learning environments using:

  • Tables in a conference-training facility.
  • Workstations in a manufacturing facility.
  • The world-class Regional Manufacturing Technology Center of Kellogg Community College, Battle Creek, Michigan.​
