Customer Testimonials

The simulators are a safe and cost-effective training tool to get our equipment operators thinking about the upcoming winter season [and] give our new operators hands-on experience that they otherwise wouldn’t get until the snow is on the ground.
Billie Miller
Virginia DOT Safety Officer
Has the training been beneficial? With regard to operator safety, I can tell you that this winter DPW has logged about 34,000 hours in the snow program, probably 90 percent of it driver time, and we haven’t had a single reported accident since the training.
Tom Henderson
Washington D.C. Solid Waste Administrator
I have not had one truck in the shop for transmission repair since 2006. We used to have a lot of transmission repairs from teaching people how to shift the gears out on the training runway. Now that students learn to shift on a simulator first, we don’t have them grinding gears and tearing up transmissions.
