VirTra is a conscientious, high-growth, fast-paced judgmental use of force simulation training company specializing in military and law enforcement. VirTra helps prepare law enforcement officers for real-life incidents so they and the communities they serve can remain safe.
Each real-world judgmental use of force training simulator has surreal scenarios that provide an in-depth look into human performance.
VirTra helps prepare law enforcement officers for real-life incidents so they and the communities they serve can remain safe. Each real-world judgmental use of force training simulator has surreal scenarios that provide an in-depth look into human performance. The demands on law enforcement to make critical decisions in tense, uncertain and rapidly evolving situations require that the human performance aspect of cognitive neuroscience and human physiology are taken into account as part of the police training methodology. Research on how to best use law enforcement simulation technology is taken into account within what VirTra does. Training scenarios are filmed in superior quality and contain the full fidelity of real actors—thus eliminating ‘video game’ training. VirTra’s extensive branching options further increase the realism by allowing scenarios to unfold based on the instructor, trainee or team’s decisions.
