  4. We found that the simulators really push the students. By the time they get done with them, they're ready for the real thing and they jump right in.

    All CTE programs have a high cost of execution. But even though I know the simulators are an investment, over a period of time I will save in my material costs. Using this type of equipment to establish students’ foundational skills saves us a great deal.
