Virtual Simulations

Virtual simulations allow learners to gain practical experience without actually being in a professional field setting. Programs can use simulations in-person or remotely through Zoom. Simulations can be delivered to any classroom. The Virtual Simulations Training Center, located in 213A Education Building, is also available for programs to use for virtual simulations.

Our list of Virtual Simulation Current Offerings describes the simulations we can offer with a short amount of lead time.  With more planning time, we can customize a simulation for you.

If you are interested in utilizing one of our Current Offerings, email  Please note that approximately 4 weeks lead time is needed for simulation development.
