In recent years, rail simulation has become one of the most effective methods for the training and qualification of train, light rail vehicle and tram drivers.
The use of rail simulator systems in training and assessment programs improves the quality of the learning process by confronting the trainee driver with a great variety of situations and out of course events.
In recognition of their benefits as a key component of the driver training and assessment process, large numbers of railway companies today make extensive use of simulator systems.
Sydac simulators have allowed rail operating companies to address the following training and competence assessment needs:
- Competence assessment
- Training of new drivers
