"Never have I used the word 'break-through' to describe our programs. I use this word now."
--Dr. Victor Morrow, Executive Director,

"I can honestly say that this one of the best trainings I have gone to in my 30 years of service."

Crimes / Internal Affairs, Pitt County (NC) Sheriff's Office
"As an expert in human performance management, training, and general Industrial-Organizational Psychology, I feel comfortable in saying that the technology that your organization brings to the world really does move the world of training forward in quantum leaps. In fact, I have discussed this technology in the doctoral classroom for 17 years, suggesting that when 'it' is available, our ability to train will move in directions that are almost unimaginable."
--Robert M. McIntyre, Ph.D., Old Dominion University
"SIMmersion simulation training users found it easy to use, enjoyed the experience, and thought it realistic and helpful. Almost all described the interview as anxiety provoking but said that the anxiety diminished as they became more skilled. They saw the benefit of its special features such as the Coach and the transcript, and they believed that they could learn the skills being taught through these methods."
--Morris Bell, Ph.D., Yale University School of Medicine,
Teaching Job Interview Skills to Psychiatrically Disabled People
Using Virtual Interviewers
"SIMmersion's game-based teaching methods are ideally suited to increasing the behavioral skills of healthcare clinicians. It's going to change how physicians are taught how to care for people with behavioral/social problems such as alcohol, drugs, weight, domestic violence, and mental health."
--Dr. Michael Fleming, MD, MPH, Professor, University of Wisconsin, Member of the National Academies of Science Institute of Medicine
"It felt so realistic to the participants, they also viewed it as a chance to overcome their fear of the situation through practice and to get better at it."

"The SIMmersion technology overcomes the serious shortcomings associated with role-playing, traditionally used for practice."
--Undisclosed Official, Department of Defense
"Users readily imputed feelings and thoughts to the virtual character and referred to their use of the system as conversation. Further, users perceived their experience as useful and reported that it had increased their interest in talking with people."
--Trepagnier, et. al.

"I have seen this (SIMmersion's) work and highly endorse its use where appropriate, and affordable. My personal assessment is that it delivers very good training in a portable and highly useable form."
