I have been using Fireground Pump Trainer by Simulation Research Corporation for approx. 6 months now. I have used the software on a multi-media projector with groups of 8-12 people at a time. I have not used the program with individual user to this point, but plan to in the future. So far, for less than $100.00 I think we payed for the program, it has been fairly effective. You can program the simulations to suit your own situations which you face in your jurisdiction. I would give the program a thumbs up, however it is not a replacement for hands on training by any stretch of the imagination. I would highly reccomend this program to introduce new operators to pump operations.
