Schneider’s Use Of Simulators

From a training perspective, though, he says Schneider also calculated that simulators helped achieve training objectives faster and at a lower cost. “The ability to use repetition is the key,” he points out. “We can practice things over and over and over in a simulator at a much faster pace than in an actual truck.”

“Osterberg notes that Schneider’s use of simulators since 2005 helped reduce the carrier’s crash rates by 32% when compared to the use of what he calls traditional training methods alone, methods that relied exclusively on classroom work and in-cab instruction.

1 HOUR Simulator Training = 4 HOURS Behind-The-Wheel (BTW) Training

Based on seven years of experience, Schneider believes that one hour of simulator time can replace four hours worth of behind-the-wheel (BTW) training. In-truck training consumes an average of 2.5 gals. of diesel per hour, Schneider says. The result is a $40/hr. savings (with diesel costing $4/gal.) in fuel cost alone when using a simulator vs. in-cab training.”

FMSCA: Higher Demonstration Of Expected Level Of Skills

By focusing on proficiency, the FMSCA has announced that the expected level of skills to be demonstrated will be higher than before. Measuring proficiency is facilitated with driving simulators that can progressively increase task difficulty and monitor and record progress.

When everyone knows that more will be expected of them, everyone invests more time and effort to succeed. It is very likely that the proper application of proficiency standards to truck driver training will increase the number of hours drivers voluntarily spend BTW and on truck simulators.
