Training is a crucial part of any job, especially if it involves anything risky, precise, or dangerous. But the gap between a trainee’s education and their first ‘real world’ experience is still a friction point for any organization. That’s why many companies across a variety of industries are incorporating virtual reality (VR) into their employee training programs. This technology allows trainees to gain realistic, hands-on experience in an immersive 3D simulation that prepares them for the real thing.

VR training is popular with employees because it’s an interactive experience that engages the senses as well as the mind. Unlike a classroom-based approach, a VR training simulation can be structured like a video game, with all the rewarding and engaging elements that keep users invested and attentive.

Using virtual reality also substantially reduces risk, both financial and physical. If a training scenario would normally involve preparing for a dangerous situation, using expensive or delicate equipment, or traveling to a faraway location, a virtual simulation can allow for all these things without risk of accident or breakage.
