Ribbon-Cutting and Preview

Western Nevada College recently held a ribbon-cutting event for the new Science Lab and truck driving simulator at the Fallon Campus. Members of the community and community leaders joined WNC staff for a preview of the new Biology lab and time in the seat of the simulator.

They turned out to drive the big rig and react to all of the obstacles and driving conditions that arise on city streets and open highways. One attendee quickly wrecked his “truck” and failed as he was not wearing a seatbelt. Another participant “wrecked” on black ice.

The simulators (one in Fallon, one in Carson) will assist the training of CDL students, as well as drivers’ education students. The two $100,000 simulators were provided through federal funding from the CARES Act. 

WNC has received a $400,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to expand the CDL program.
