A Simulator Loaded With Training Tools!

Sue Pivetta knows for certain there are many ways to learn 9-1-1.  As the instructor of a 630 hour college vocational 9-1-1 course she found out quickly how to be creative, she had to!    

"When I was working six hours a day for six months with twenty students, I figured out quickly that people need a dynamic learning atmosphere with a large variety of learning tools.  Creativity becomes a survival tool! There are many ways to learn."  Sue Pivetta

9-1-1 Reality Training Station was created by Sue and a team of educators and simulation experts around the “realities” of lab and classroom training and learning. Following her passion for simulation as an effective adult learning experience, Sue and her team combined the ability to practice multitasking, call taking, radio dispatching with a wide array of learning and instructional tools. 

The simulation component of the 9-1-1 Reality Training Station allows for one-on-one training or large lab for instructor to multiple learner set ups.  Learners also have the ability to sign on and role play using features such as sound effects, student logs and student recordings.  Customized ALI/ANI, call types, unit identifiers, and sound effects allow for a very realistic training experience for your area.

Understanding the realities of training lab limitations and challenges, 9-1-1 Reality hardware offers wireless state of the art All In One portable desktop 20' stations.  Pick up the lab and move it without bulky CPUs or wires.  A major design goal was achieved with easy set up and minimal learning curve for the simulation software.  These are truly plug and play loaded stations.

"The classroom or lab can become the instructor's nightmare if there isn't simplicity in design and flexibility for simulation practice." 

The 'many ways to learn' element offers a station LOADED with DVDs, call cards, workshops, scripted 9-1-1 calls, learning games and exercises. Learners can be self directed to allow individual instruction or full group participation.
