VR training for technical skills

Build competence in highly skilled tasks with the power of virtual reality

VR training can efficiently upskill employees in many technical roles. Find out more about how Immerse could help your business.

Upskill your workforce with immersive VR training


When it comes to highly skilled tasks, mistakes can be easy to make but costly to put right. In certain situations, errors can even be life-threatening. Hands-on training is the best way to address this risk, so it is no surprise that safety and manufacturing skills training is the second-most popular application of VR and AR among U.S. manufacturers. VR training lets organisations put technical employees in any location or situation, safely interacting with items or equipment that would be difficult or dangerous to have in a real-life training environment.

Remote training that puts employees in control

Immersive, hands-on training that lets employees build the skills they need in a safe, risk-free environment.

VR Equipment operations training

Reduce reliance on in-demand equipment with training that takes place in VR and doesn’t impact workplace operations.

New process introduction

Offer training for new processes or equipment ahead of time, minimising business interruption.

Team-based learning

Enable employees to practice working together efficiently and safely in a hands-on training environment.

Knowledge sharing repository

Build an extensive library of training content that’s accessible and repeatable on demand. Create a new way to transfer valuable technical knowledge to new or current employees needing to refresh or reskill.

Training that matches the modern working environment

VR lets you give staff the scalable, skills-based training they need without the huge financial outlay or health and safety risks.

Reduce training costs

Technical training can be a long and complicated process. VR shrinks this. Compared to learning in a classroom, employees pick up new skills four times faster in VR. There are other cost benefits too: staff can undertake time-intensive training without taking operational equipment offline.

Increase knowledge retention

Highly detailed, immersive VR training scenarios bridge the gap between theoretical learning and the real world, resulting in higher retention. Peer-reviewed research reports a 52% drop in post-training skill fade when that training takes place in virtual reality.

Ensure training consistency

Role-specific skills training has always been difficult to run at scale, partly because using different training environments and instructors can lead to inconsistencies. VR makes the process quicker and more consistent. Sessions can be delivered to multiple attendees at once. This means staff can be upskilled more efficiently and that everyone gets the same hands-on experience, bringing speed and flexibility to the rollout of new equipment or processes.

Transform the assessment process

The time and cost outlays associated with skill-based training environments also apply to assessment. Not only that, but revisiting an employee’s performance after the assessment can be unreliable. VR resolves this problem. Employees can be assessed remotely and, with 3D session recording, you can go back and show them where they went wrong and how to fix it.

The Immerse difference

Not every enterprise-ready VR solution is created equal. Find out how Immerse helps you supercharge the employee experience and maximise ROI.

Content freedom

Choose from Marketplace, our library of licensable off-the-shelf VR training apps, or work with Immerse to create compelling custom VR content. Use our SDK create your own or import your existing content. With modular support for creating your own single or multi-user scenarios, and a streamlined importing process for getting your existing content onto our platform to distribute at scale, you can ensure a consistent training experience for employees every time, no matter where they’re located.

Measurable insight

Guiding the development of soft skills can be difficult – but not with Immerse. As every user action is recorded, our platform transforms that information stream into actionable intelligence. Get the data-driven insight you need to measure attention and engagement, helping introduce real behavioural change.

Seamless integration and enterprise-level security

Using VR to develop soft skills works best when it can integrate with your existing systems. Our platform makes that possible. With xAPI and Single Sign-On (SSO) support, and secure connectivity to your LMS or other business intelligence tools, it’s quick and easy to introduce the benefits of VR.

Content distribution and scalability

Rolling out VR training for your workforce doesn’t have to mean an IT upgrade. Let us manage the complexities of user access requirements and content delivery, giving you the freedom to introduce a fully immersive learning environment at your own pace. As our platform can be accessed through a web browser, you don’t even need to equip every team member with a VR headset to get started.

Platform benefits

Immerse is designed from the ground up for simplified deployment and ongoing management, and offers several key benefits:

Risk-free simulation

Train employees in a safe, virtual environment for scenarios that are either too dangerous or too difficult to replicate in reality.

Deeper engagement

A fully immersive cross-platform experience that helps employees learn by doing, reinforcing the right behaviour and knowledge retention.

Built-in repeatability

Assess employees consistently and efficiently. Create content once, roll it out countless times.

Cloud based

Accessible from anywhere with managed content hosting, further reducing costs.

Open platform

Secure, seamless integration with your existing systems and the freedom to bring and create your own content.

Hardware agnostic

Full support for a wide range of VR devices, as well as browser-based WebGL and mobile applications.

Virtual training scenarios, real outcomes

Employees need access to specialist equipment to improve their skills. But that same equipment is often in daily use. This can create a bottleneck for training purposes, which is why GE Healthcare needed a new approach that could remove that bottleneck without delaying patient procedures.

Through an interactive CT scanner training scenario, the Immerse Platform gave radiographers 24/7 access to a simulated environment that allowed them to practice using specialist equipment without restriction.
