CBRNe and HazMat simulator training is a powerful and innovative way to ensure your students are getting the practical knowledge they need to respond to events quickly, safely, and efficiently.
This specialised training equipment removes the need to use hazardous chemical or radioactive sources for practical learning scenarios. You will no longer have to take into account the impact of safety, environmental, logistical, administrative, and cost issues associated with using hazardous substances or sources for training.
While Live Agents have an important role to play in CBRNe and Hazmat training, they have some serious pitfalls that simulator training can solve. For example, using simulator CBRNe training equipment protects the real detectors from misuse. As many instructors know, students can easily damage expensive detectors during training exercises, or, at best, saturate training environments with simulants.
An additional concern is planning exercises for modern CBRNe / HazMat threats and risks. You need to develop a variety of scenarios (clandestine laboratory search, large or local area survey / reconnaissance, threat assessment or decontamination) to ensure effective readiness with minimal regulatory burden. This can be time-consuming and costly. It can also limit when and where your scenarios can be carried out. In some cases, this can disrupt the realism necessary for effective practical learning.
Alternatively, with HazMat and CBRNe simulator training, you have the flexibility to run training scenarios when, where, and how you want. This means you can conduct HazMat simulator training situations inside public buildings, or set up your simulator CBRNe training equipment at any time, and under any weather condition. With the flexibility that comes with simulator training equipment, the possibilities are endless.
