Exceptional Training Facility
The program is located at the Columbia County Sheriff Emergency Vehicle Operation & Training Centre. This ‘leading edge’ facility is purpose-built, under the direct supervision of Columbia County Sheriff Clay Whittle, specifically for these types of programs. The facility is located in Appling, GA, which is 30 miles west of Augusta Regional Airport and 138 miles east of Atlanta International Airport.
Program Design and Curriculum
We incorporate the use of technologies that are commonly used in Motorsports, including onboard cameras, data logging systems, as well as simulator training. Classroom time is purposely limited to address the specifics of vehicle handling and operation that are relevant to high-speed emergency response driving. This allows maximum driving time over the two-day program; on the large driving range and 1.2 mile test track.
The program is operated using specially prepared police vehicles providing high-performance driving and skid recovery skills training. The vehicles are equipped with onboard cameras and data logging systems to establish a 1 on 1 feedback and correction for each student.
In-Depth On-Track Activities
On-track activities include skid recovery/avoidance, low coefficient of grip autocross, braking and cornering, and high-speed lapping on the 1.2-mile test track. Classroom time covers vehicle dynamics, driver control and inputs, advanced braking and cornering techniques, video, data debriefing sessions, and simulator training.
The program is designed to increase the student’s skills, awareness, and ability to drive a vehicle at higher speeds while multitasking under stress in any environment and weather condition. Prepare for 2 days of nonstop activities.
