Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) training experiences make the impossible possible by providing safe and cost-effective training alternatives that look and feel natural. The fully immersive environment allows trainees to handle real-world scenarios, including dangerous situations, in a safe training experience.
Training is becoming a more widespread use of VR in the enterprise, with 50% of respondents to the Industrial XR Training Survey reporting that their VR strategy belongs to the training, learning, and development department. Almost 80% of respondents said that the purpose of their industrial XR program is employee education.
Companies that used VR/AR technology found that employees were better prepared for job duties than traditional training methods.
