Is VR the Future of Training?August 9, 2018
FLAIM Systems Pty Ltd was invited to demonstrate FLAIM Trainer™ to a group of emergency management trainers by Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) in October 2017. During the presentation a live poll was conducted asking the attendees ‘Is VR the Future of Training?’ The response was quite compelling with 85% saying yes, 10% saying no and the remaining 5% unsure.
The poll is revealing in terms of the potential of VR enabled training to deliver the next generation of training solutions. And although VR has found most of its application in experience based information and entertainment to date, training has the potential to be a key application growth area for VR. The individual immersion VR provides, and the potential of VR to deliver cost effective distributed training through portability, utility and affordability.
With FLAIM Trainer™ being an example solution, it will be interesting to see where VR takes training – and vice versa.
