New simulator puts paramedic students in the driver’s seat


A generous in-kind donation will give students in the Paramedic Academy at the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) the opportunity to safely practice important driving skills at the New Westminster campus.

The new driving simulator generously provided by Alberto Montoto of MONCAR Simulators Ltd. incorporates one of the most advanced simulation systems available to provide a fully immersive, authentic driving experience. Drivers see the full field of view while in the simulator, which has three 20-inch high-definition monitors that provide the same viewing area as a vehicle’s windshield. Included in the simulator is a Canadian version of the street ready driving program comprised of various scenarios drivers can experience on the road.
