Bus training simulators have changed the way we think about driver training. In this video, two subject matter experts discuss the impact made by bus simulation training and some common misconceptions about the process.
In this video, Clayne Woodbury (North American Transit Simulator Sales at FAAC Inc) interviews Rob Raheb. Introduced to driver simulation training in 2003, Rob Raheb was bitten by the simulator bug and “just got it”. Realizing the benefits and potential training abilities this high-tech tool held, simulation training has added a new and exciting dimension to his vehicle training program and those benefits were obtained with a 38% reduction in intersection collisions for the New York City Fire Department within the first year and a steady decline every year since. In 2009, Rob Raheb retired from FDNY and accepted a position as a Subject Matter Specialist in the field of simulation training with FAAC, Inc. Rob Raheb continues to help develop curriculum and lectures on the benefits of simulation training and is a member of the NFPA Fire Service Training Committee. He has had articles on simulation training published in national trade magazines and has been cited in several studies. Rob Raheb is a co-author of an internationally published book on EMS Vehicle Operations and currently lectures at national conferences.
