Technological training tools are created to reduce knowledge gaps in high-risk tasks or in which interaction with the environment is crucial for proper learning. In this way, the Virtual Reality used in the training of people intends to bring these gaps to 0 through high-impact immersive content, aiming at the same time to generate better performance in 3 key areas of industries and institutions such as security, productivity and a factor that takes center stage today, innovation. In this article we want to show you some reasons why you should implement Virtual Reality in your training centers or processes and how its use improves aforementioned focuses, but first let’s explain some concepts.
Virtual Reality are digital environments in which we can interact from a physical environment, for which special viewers are used to guarantee the feeling of immersion and allow us to move and interact safely in that space or structure.
It is through simulation processes, courses, use of equipment or vehicles that Virtual Reality begins to enhance training, achieving an impact in 3 key areas.
- Safety: Through Virtual Reality simulation, users can learn without exposing themselves to risks, as well as reinforcing knowledge of the protocols through empirical learning situations. It is known that on one side of the coin there is a high rate of accidents in novice operators and on the other hand it can take many years for an operator to face a critical risk. Simulation with virtual reality allows to eliminate this gap, because it gives the operator the possibility of facing risk situations within the simulation without any type of negative consequence, thus managing to develop a better reaction in the event of an accident.
- Productivity: The use of these technologies allows minimizing and optimizing the training time of the operators, managing to maximize the productivity periods of the company. In addition, simulations allow operators to develop skills faster which speeds up their induction process by reducing training periods from 7 hours to 2 hours for example.
- Innovation: Innovation by Virtual Reality not only has a factor linked to marketing or commercial. Its innovative impact can also be measured in the optimization of processes, the digitalization of inductions and the digital transformation trends towards Industry 4.0
The first thing is to detect what your tasks or critical risks, what are your biggest deficiencies in your training processes and then look for a company that provides you with the tools you need or develops tools tailored to your needs. The investment for the use of these technologies is increasingly accessible to small and medium-sized companies, so their use is becoming normalized in the market.
