To deliver the best possible training experience to our clients, we have partnered with industry experts. These partnerships have provided additional expertise in various certified V-VICTA curriculum offered.

Partners include:

  • Force Science – Courses including “Weapon Transitions” and “Human Factors” were co-authored by the experts at Force Science – a widely-known law enforcement research, training, and consulting company.
  • Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center – Due to the need to support interactions between law enforcement and people on the autism spectrum, VirTra partnered with SARRC to provide curriculum to teach officers how to safely and effectively communicate with people on the spectrum.
  • National Sheriff’s Association – VirTra has worked alongside NSA to develop training focused on dog encounters. While not a certified course, it is the first of its kind that includes interactive scenarios and lessons on how to distinguish dog behavior.
  • Aimpoint® – A mounted optic provider, Aimpoint assisted VirTra in the creation of the “Red Dot Optic Training & Sustainment” course by allowing the utilization of their pistol mounted red dot optics. Aimpoint is recognized as the originator of red dot sight technology.
  • Victory First – VirTra developed the “Red Dot Optic Training & Sustainment” course in conjunction with Victory First owner Matt Jacques – a retired officer and U.S. Marine veteran. Victory First trains law enforcement as well as responsible firearm owners.

VirTra has also worked with Haley Strategic and Action Target for applying lessons learned in the simulator to the real world. Whether it is decision-making or marksmanship, the important part of training is that it can be transferred to reality.

We appreciate and thank our partners for their contributions to our training, making it more sustainable and trustworthy.

Learning how to shoot a firearm on a live course at a stationary target is one thing. However, being able to practice hitting moving targets through varying conditions and utilizing your weapon in a stressful environment is an entire step up in any form of firearm training.

Whether you are law enforcement, military, or just someone looking to sharpen their firearm skills, you have the opportunity receive high quality simulator firearm training.

Benefits of Simulator Firearm Training

Having access to simulator training along with extensive firearm education provides several benefits.

Because this course was created to help better firearm skills, students are going to be shooting a good number of rounds to get their practice in. On a live range, concerns arise regarding the environmental impact of the debris, the time it would take to cleanup, and the cost of providing that amount of ammunition. Shooting on a simulator range mitigates all of those additional costs and cleanup!

With VirTra’s drop-in recoil kits, students can turn live weapons into simulation-ready weapons with realistic recoil.  Once weapons are simulation-ready, they are able to be used on the simulator ranges and scenarios where shot placement, accuracy, and more are calculated for students to learn and better from!
