FAAC Launches Driver Training Blog to Raise Safety Awareness, Share Knowledge
To initiate a national discussion and raise awareness to the challenges and opportunities of driver training
for professional drivers, FAAC Incorporated has created the Driver Training and Safety Blog to host
commentary from some of the leading driver training instructors in the country.
The mission of the blog site is to create and maintain a national conversation that explores how to better
train the professional driving markets we serve. We will also explore the profession of driver training, the
challenges facing the field, tactics and innovations, and share best practices from which readers can
benefit. The blog also will raise awareness to the issues and challenges facing the field of modern driver
The markets we serve ultimately serve each of us and the entire public,” said David Bouwkamp, FAAC’s
executive director of commercial business development. “It is our hope that by raising the level of
awareness through thoughtful and intelligent discussion led by professional driver trainers in these
various markets that a difference can be made in preventable incidents, injuries, and fatalities.
“Driving is a perishable skill that must be re-engaged regularly to avoid casualness and complacency.
Our lives depend on it. Our goal is that this forum will serve as a catalyst to improved driving practices.”
FAAC has compiled a roster of writers: a combination of current instructors and FAAC’s Specialists
(training leaders in their respective industries), who will produce twice-monthly contributions to this
national discussion. Writers will post blog articles throughout the month so content on the site continues
to be fresh. For those interested in immediate updates, an RSS feed will be attached to the page.
The FAAC Driver Training and Safety Blog is located at: www.faac.com/blog
FAAC manufactures driver training simulators for the transit, emergency response, public safety, rail,
trucking, and oil field industries. Its Customer for Life philosophy enables it to reach into educational
areas to promote driver training and safety issues that impact its customers and all other driver training
"I believe a common issue in police work is the lack of cross-training among areas and regions,” said
FAAC’s Public Safety Specialist Chuck Deakins. “The FAAC Driver Training and Safety Blog will
create an opportunity for us to criss-cross the nation with ideas and solutions regarding safe driving
practices. We plan to explore the entire realm of driver training, and that includes simulation training as
that method transitions into common use across the country."
