Virage simulation and its colleagues from two independent Universities have been awarded the Deborah Freund Paper Award by the Transportation Research Board for the paper entitled “Transfer of Training in Basic Control Skills from a Truck Simulator to a Real Truck”
“The Virage VS600M is an extremely powerful training tool. The drivers we train love it “It’s just like my truck.” The simulator enables us to train in high risk situations that improve our client’s drivers’ awareness and behaviors. It is very durable and reliable. Kudos to the Virage team, they are always there for us when we need them!”
John Heinzel, President, Next Gen Driver Training
“We compared all the simulators on the market. The VS600M by Virage Simulation and its training programs won hands down.”
Lucas Mowrey, Safety Director, Grand Island Express
“We use the VS600M to help our students develop basic skills before they drive a truck… The simulator has been extremely reliable and the Virage technical staff promptly resolved the rare situations we encountered.”
