"Simulated firearms training has been piloted by the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) for correctional officer recruits. This innovative training method involves the use of laser-based technology in a simulated environment, and has effectively been utilized in military and law enforcement settings. Unlike live fire training, no ammunition is required and can result in increased safety, more efficient training and cost savings for organizations. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of firearms training delivered in a simulated environment, in comparison to the traditional method of live fire training." -- Executive summary, p. iii.
