Virtual reality (VR) training is the latest technology that has been increasingly adopted by companies worldwide. It is a simulated environment that enables trainees to experience and interact with situations, events, and objects as if they were real. This is becoming popular in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to its numerous benefits. Here are three reasons why companies must use this technology:
Reason #1: It’s Cost-Effective
Traditional training methods require companies to incur travel, accommodation, and venue rental expenses, which can be expensive. Hiring trainers and paying for their services can also add to the costs. However, with VR training, companies can eliminate these expenses. This does not require physical travel, accommodation, or a venue. Trainees can participate in the training from anywhere worldwide if they can access a VR headset and a stable internet connection. Also, companies can save on costs by using virtual training to simulate dangerous situations, emergencies, or expensive equipment that may not be available for traditional training methods.
Reason #2: It Enhances Trainee Engagement
Traditional training methods, such as lectures and demonstrations, can be boring and may not keep trainees engaged. This can result in poor retention rates and low learning outcomes. However, it can create an immersive learning experience that keeps trainees engaged and motivated. VR training can simulate real-life scenarios and enable trainees to interact with different objects and situations, which helps them understand concepts better.
Also, VR training can provide trainees with immediate feedback, boosting their confidence and encouraging them to keep learning. Virtual training can also be customized to fit the trainee’s learning style, pace, and preferences, which can improve their learning outcomes.
Reason #3: It Can Improve Safety and Reduce Risks
In the UAE, many industries, such as oil and gas, aviation, and construction, involve high-risk activities that require specialized training. Traditional training methods may not adequately prepare trainees for such high-risk activities, which can lead to accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
However, VR training can simulate dangerous situations and enable trainees to experience them in a safe and controlled environment. This can help trainees learn how to respond to emergencies, operate machinery, and follow safety procedures without risking their lives or those of others.
VR training can also provide trainees with a realistic experience of what it feels like to operate heavy machinery, work at heights, or handle hazardous materials, which can improve their skills and confidence.
