AS3 DRIVER TRAINING PROGRAMS

At AS3 Driver Training, our training programs are intricately structured to build upon themselves over time, creating an evolving journey of skill acquisition and enhancement.

Starting with foundational skills in our initial training, we progressively introduce new, specialized techniques in subsequent programs. This structured progression ensures that each new skill is in harmony with the baseline skills established from the first training session.

Utilizing our advanced systems and dashboard, we consistently measure and track these skills, allowing for a precise and data-driven approach to skill development. This methodical and systematic progression ensures that our participants are continuously advancing, aligning with the latest in driving and security demands.

Advanced [Counter-Ambush] Driving Skills

(ACADS): Building Real-World Readiness

In our ACADS program, we focus intensely on creating a security driver mindset. This is where experience meets intuition – where understanding the limits of a vehicle and reacting instinctively in high-stress scenarios becomes second nature. Our training, developed from firsthand experience in high-threat environments, is not just about learning; it’s about ingraining the skills that can make life-or-death differences.

Key Aspects:

  • Real Experience: Fostering an environment where drivers feel what it’s like to lose control, setting the hardwiring for instinctive and correct responses in actual situations.
  • Scientific Approach: We align our techniques with research from leading automotive and security organizations, ensuring our training is grounded in proven scientific methods.

Who It’s For:

  • Corporate Security and Executive Protection Professionals: For those operating in high-threat environments, our course offers invaluable insights and real skills, measurable and impactful.

This course is designed for those who have already laid their foundational skills in ACADS. It’s about taking those skills to the next level – enhancing them and adding specialized capabilities. It’s rigorous and intense, focusing on practical, hands-on experiences that embed deep understanding and automatic reactions in critical situations.

Key Aspects:

  • Hands-on Experience: Understanding the vehicle’s limits through practical exercises and learning to avoid crises during escape maneuvers.
  • Realistic Training: Utilizing brand new vehicles for training, providing an authentic understanding of modern vehicle capabilities.
  • Stress Inoculation: Preparing drivers for real-life impacts, using the vehicle as a tool for prevention and defense.

Who It’s For:

  • Professional Security Drivers, Executive Drivers, and Protection Specialists: This course is tailor-made for those seeking to provide safe transportation in high-risk environments, enhancing their skills for real-world application.

Each course at AS3 Driver Training is designed with a specific purpose – to transform drivers into highly skilled professionals capable of handling the most extreme and unexpected driving scenarios. Our training is grounded in scientific research and practical experience, ensuring that our drivers are not just trained but are ready and instinctual in their responses, making them invaluable assets in any high-risk situation.

ONLINE TRAINING INCLUDED WITH YOUR PACKAGE

Times have changed, and we have evolved with them to maximize your time at the track; therefore, we have eliminated all onsite classroom time and migrated to a hybrid learning experience; this has granted us four more hours of hands-on training on the tarmac.

Knowledge is essential, and the lack of it will create incomplete skills that will disappear very fast from your brain; we need you to make sense of what you are doing behind the wheel for the right mindset to be created.

For this purpose, we have joint forces with EP Access to create a virtual classroom and some self-assessment forms that you can access at your own pace that will help get you ready for the real thing.

Every student must have finished all the virtual training before coming to the track by visiting EPaccess.com and using their personalized code to access the course.

REPORTS & CERTIFICATION

All our advanced courses are measured in real-time via Racelogic computers; they have the most advanced technology, which allows us to know each participant’s skill level beyond a simple interpretation of the instructor.

A performance report will be issued for every student at the end of each course, allowing teams and employers to understand:

  1. the skill level of each of their drivers, and
  2. the ability of each of them to apply these skills in different scenarios with increasing degrees of difficulty and stress.

These reports will allow managers to identify the individuals within their team that are the best performing assets for different situations.
