The high tech, state of the art, Simulator is entirely self-contained in a 53’ expandable mobile classroom containing three separate simulators, which can emulate many different types of vehicles small or large.  Our mobility sets us apart, allowing us to accommodate your training needs by conveniently coming to your requested location with our certified instructors.  We can travel almost anywhere in the country, allowing for a more efficient and effective training experience while reducing the cost.

Simulator training provides important education concentrating on additional knowledge while improving skills, technique, and their professional application. All this training results in a much safer environment for us all to live, with an improved public image of your agency or company within your community.

Thanks to Kenney Etherton & Company, The Training Simulator will be available for visiting throughout the conference!
