Read on to discover the virtual learning resources that educators and participants can access from anywhere.
Innocorp designed the intoxiclock Pro software to dynamically demonstrate the impact of drinking as it relates to BAC (blood alcohol concentration). The simple-to-use, easy-to-understand software meets the need for deliveringvirtual learning.
Many people have difficulty understanding just how little alcohol it takes to become an unsafe or unlawful driver. They think they’re okay to drive and find out too late they should have found another way to get home.
The intoxiclock Pro tool allows you to build a scenario that considers a person’s gender and weight, what time they started drinking, what and how much they drank, and more. Based on these inputs, intoxiclock Pro calculates the person’s BAC and displays vibrant graphics and a real-time digital countdown clock indicating how long it will take to get back to a BAC of 0.0.
intoxiclock Pro software comes standard with a digital user guide and instructional materials to guide program delivery and use.
