Driving Simulator Training
Members participating in the Automobile Liability and Workers’ Compensation programs have access to this training. Learn more.
Laser-Driven Fire Extinguisher Simulator Training
Members participating in the Workers’ Compensation and Property programs can participate in this training. The simulator uses a laser to replicate extinguisher discharge and does not leave a residue as with a dry-chemical or CO2 extinguisher. Participants can simulate class A, B and C fires. This ensures trainees are prepared for a real fire. Contact Simulator Program Supervisor Darren Jackson for more information.
Resistance Response Simulator
Members in the Law Enforcement Liability Program have access to this training, which helps county law enforcement officers who encounter volatile situations typical in law enforcement operations. Learn more.
