CDL Simulators Designed for Truck Drivers, with Truck Drivers, for Genuine Driving Feel
How will your truck drivers perform in a snowstorm, when road conditions are poor and visibility is compromised? Or when a pedestrian unexpectedly steps off a curb? Or when a distracted driver drifts into their lane? And how will you train truck drivers to handle scenarios like these without compromising safety and efficiency?
Truck driver simulator training improves truckers’ everyday over-the-road operating skills by putting them in realistic, authentic environments in advance. Drivers get a feel for the controls, handling, and gauges of a real cab well before they climb into a road-ready truck. Developing familiarity with the real-life experience of truck driving in a safe, simulated setting increases confidence, so drivers can hit the road for the first time prepared for both the everyday challenges and the unexpected emergencies.
CDL Simulator Training Emphasizes Realistic, Authentic Experiences
Simulation-based CDL training has proven to be a superior method of teaching fundamentals and basic commercial driving skills. Good CDL simulators can create realistic driving scenarios that train drivers to keep themselves and others safe on the road. When truck drivers have a chance to experience and navigate real-world situations in advance, they learn how to handle a wide range of hazards and emergencies. They can develop their decision-making skills, and practice until their responses become second nature.
CDL simulators also improve training efficiency. Whether the trainee is a CDL student or an experienced truck driver, the simulator allows for extensive practice time, without the use of fuel or wear-and-tear on fleet vehicles—and with absolutely no risk to equipment, workers, or the community. If you’re serious about CDL and ongoing training for commercial truck drivers, a truck simulator can make the difference.
It takes realistic environments to provide real experience. FAAC offers the most realistic immersive, state-of-the-art, simulation-based CDL truck driver training programs available. Our training environment includes elements found in actual rig cabs, creating vivid, authentic, and compelling virtual training experiences.
Better Simulation Tools Mean More Effective Training: FAAC TT 1000 and TT 2000 CDL Driving Simulators
The FAAC TT 1000 and TT 2000 Truck Driver Training Simulators are designed to give both new and veteran truckers a meaningful training experience. Multiple high-definition displays give an expansive, geometrically correct +300º field-of-view with adjustable inset mirrors. The cabs can be generic, approximating many vehicle makes and models, or built to precisely match your fleets’ controls, indicators, gauges, and switches.
Our award-winning immersive 3D simulation software allows trainees to work at their own pace through basic skills development, refresher activities, annual certifications, and remedial lessons. As a result, it can act as a cornerstone of any CDL training course. Instructors can precisely and accurately craft training episodes that mimic real-life risks and hazard conditions specific to your sites, equipment, and responsibilities—even modeling actual incidents from your industry. Through immersive simulation training, your drivers will not only become adept at truck driving fundamentals and appropriate procedures, they will also acclimate to the emotional realities of an emergency situation.
Technology is only half the solution. Over and over again, our customers find that the real value is an integrated, immersive FAAC simulation training solution that empowers trainers. FAAC simulators create opportunities for training staff to pinpoint exactly where their students are succeeding and where they are falling short. FAAC’s dynamic and intuitive Instructor Operating Station (IOS) includes lesson planning and evaluation tools, as well as exclusive real-time controls. Instructors can alter variables (like weather conditions, traffic, cyclists, and pedestrian activity) to gauge drivers’ response to spontaneous hazards. Lessons can then be fine-tuned and repeated so that every driver is prepared for both everyday tasks and rare, high-risk events.
Truck Driver Training Customer-for-Life
FAAC embraces a “Customer for Life” philosophy. We don’t just sell simulators; we partner with companies, agencies, trainers, and drivers to develop and create their ideal training solution. We invest the time up front to understand your needs, then develop and deliver the appropriate turnkey solution.
