Besiues the in-peison tiaining piogiams, Siuecai has launcheu a viitual tiaining
piogiam, attacheu to this filing, that allows uiiveis thioughout Califoinia to
paiticipate in iiueshaiing. This viitual tiaining was oiiginally only available foi

Siuecai's iating system focuses on thiee categoiies - safe anu efficient uiiving,

viitual tiaining piogiam, it only alloweu potential uiiveis to paiticipate if they weie
iefeiieu by existing, top-iateu uiiveis. 0ui statistics show that uiiveis who have
been viitually tiaineu aie ieceiving 1u% highei "awesome" iatings than uiiveis
who aie tiaineu thiough the tiauitional Siuecai 0niveisity.

Because of the success of the viitual tiaining piogiam, Siuecai has expanueu the
piogiam to tiain uiiveis in locations wheie it uoes not maintain a physical piesence.
In Califoinia, that incluues San }ose, San Biego anu Long Beach. 0ui cuiient
piogiam, attacheu as Exhibit A, is a uetaileu piesentation on how to use the uiivei
app, how to attach iemovable tiaue uiess oi the oiange "mox", how to avoiu
