Driving simulator maker FAAC Inc.'s annual customer conference, to be held in Long Beach, Calif., this fall, will feature the first-ever certification course for driving simulator instructors.
The 6th Annual User Conference will be held aboard the historic Queen Mary in Long Beach October 11 to 14.
FAAC hosts its annual conference to benefit customers through knowledge sharing, networking, and expert instruction. This year, FAAC is conducting the first-ever certification course for driving simulator instructors.
"The Driving Simulator Train the Trainer Certification Course was created because of the growing interest in all professional driving industries toward simulation training," said David Bouwkamp, executive director of commercial business development.
The course, scheduled for Oct. 11, is eight hours and includes sessions on student and scenario management, student development, de-briefing strategies and curriculum design. It will be led by FAAC Public Safety Specialist Chuck Deakins.
The three-day user conference, Oct. 12-14, is an opportunity for driver training instructors who use simulators to gather and teach and learn from others, network and return home with new tips, techniques, applications and methods for simulator instruction.
Events include a keynote address, success story presentations from industry peers, group discussions, an informal reception, hands-on training with simulation equipment and a workshop on building driving scenarios with FAAC's Scenario Toolbox software program.
