Are you new to VirTra simulator training? If you want to jump right into effective training but feel overwhelmed, there is an option to help you instruct your class.

VirTra – Virtual Instructor, typically shortened to V-VI™, is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the training content on your simulator. A virtual instructor will appear onscreen and highlight important training details in the selected scenario.

Numerous scenarios have a V-VI option which can be activated by the click of a button. Categories include:

  • High risk vehicle stops
  • Emotionally disturbed person (EDP)
  • Domestic violence
  • Ambushes
  • Tourniquet application
  • And more

Additionally, instructors can view specific considerations to look for when an officer is using the simulator. By utilizing this “train the trainer” feature, instructors can fully understand the purpose of the training event and the actions student officers should take when going through the scenario.

Additional Training

VirTra also recommends courses for both new and experienced instructors and operators. Whether it is to learn best practices on a new simulator or get the advanced ins-and-outs of simulator operation, there are courses instructed by experts available.

ATCC – Advanced Trainer Certification Course – is designed for trainers with a minimum of six months of experience using their VirTra simulator. It is fast-paced and spans across 5 days, taking place at VirTra’s Training Center at the Chandler, AZ headquarters.

VirTra Master Class is a newly developed course that helps new users learn skills beyond basic operation and “button-ology.” Students will learn how to conduct debrief sessions, build training events, and become familiar with the VirTra simulator’s capabilities.
