San Diego Job Corps center uses technology to reinforce classroom instruction in their driver education life skills course
Virtual Driver Interactive Inc. (VDI), the leading provider of simulation-based driver training solutions for commercial and education applications, today announced that the San Diego Job Corps center added VDI simulation with Virtual Driving Essentials program to their driver education curriculum.
Job Corps is a program administered by the United States Department of Labor that offers free-of-charge education and vocational training to young men and women ages 16 to 24. Job Corps are committed to providing their students with 'success that lasts a lifetime' - and it is nowhere more evident than in the San Diego Job Corps center.
"Job Corps students from all walks of life have benefited from the safe, inclusive and real life driving situations that Virtual Driver Interactive provides," said Bonita V. Mason - Drivers Ed. Specialist at San Diego Job Corps. "Students are ready to face behind the wheel in real time once they complete the required lessons. Safety, reaction times, road conditions, traffic and unpredictable occurrences are all addressed in comfortable, controlled and safe settings. Virtual Driver Interactive allows each of our students to apply that knowledge and have more confident experiences once they are ready for the road."
Driving is a necessary skill required by most people to get to/from their job every day. Realizing the importance of this skill, San Diego Job Corps purchased VDI's three-screen full cab simulator (LX3) with the latest Virtual Driving Essentials driver training program. They used VDI's GSA contract (GS-02F-0122W) and they were able to easily purchase what they needed as well as achieve the most cost effective price. By adding simulation to their existing classroom and behind-the-wheel curriculum, they are now able to successfully train a large volume of students to get their driver's license and attain a higher level of employability.
