The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Signs Five-Year Contract for EVOC-101 Web Online Driver Training
Agreement includes translation of the program to French-Canadian and technical support for simulator software
Murray, UT, March 23, 2012 – The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has renewed its contract for EVOC-101 Web™, a proven online driver training program. The five-year contract includes translation of the program into French-Canadian and a support agreement for Applied Simulation Technologies’ (AST) driving simulator software, EVOC-101™.
As an early adopter of EVOC-101 Web, the RCMP has become familiar with the program and the positive effect it can have on driver training. In 2010, the RCMP studied the effectiveness of EVOC-101 Web when used prior to training in a driving simulator. Results of the study showed that drivers pre-instructed with EVOC-101 Web significantly outperformed those not given the training program.
RCMP began using EVOC-101 Web in 2008 when it was first released and has been monitoring the program’s results or several years. The five-year contract imbeds the program as an ongoing part of the RCMPS’s training regimen. In addition, the French-Canadian translation will ensure the course is available to all RCMP constables.
“The research performed by RCMP documents the value that other agencies have reported,” said Reginald Welles, President and CEO of AST. “RCMP’s five-year commitment is the strongest endorsement for EVOC-101 Web’s performance and our dedication to making excellence in training practical.”
