Modern vehicle technology

In this course participants will get to know the latest in vehicle technology in regards to vehicle rescue and extrication. Following an interactive classroom session, covering aspects like body construction, restraint systems and alternative propulsion, participants will then be able to directly apply their gained knowledge in both, virtual reality and hands-on extrication scenarios. Cutting and spreading techniques to cope with modern technology challenges are also part of the program along with information on setting up scenarios for practical training.
