A team from Advanced Training Systems in Melbourne, Australia were given a tour of the Omnitrans training facilities today by Omnitrans Fleet Safety and Training Supervisor Don Frazier. Advanced Training Systems is a safety company hired by corporations to mitigate hazards and reduce costs associated with these incidents, much like our ATAP committee here at Omni.
The group was joined by Enrique Mar of Oceanside, the developer of our new, in-house coach simulator system, who treated them to a hands-on demonstration. Enrique set up several scenarios with various challenges for our visitors to overcome, from glare or rain on the windshield, jaywalking pedestrians, aggressive drivers, busy streets and obstacle courses.
Our Australian friends had a wonderful time and were extremely impressed with our facility and the simulator, which will be used to train Omnitrans coach operators and help prepare them for challenging driving situations.
