Virtual reality – A Game Changer For Training And Skill Development

The Indian government plans to skill 40.2 crore workers by 2022. And thanks to the ‘Make in India’ program and the large consumer base, India is now becoming an attractive destination for manufacturing.

Given the large student population in India and the ongoing need for skilled people to run the industries and not enough trainers in the market, we need to adopt more scalable and scientific forms of training and skill development

Earlier rejected as a video game, virtual reality (VR) and simulator-based training technology are changing how training programs are delivered.

Virtual reality training programs, when combined with traditional training offers distinct advantages. In addition to economic and safety benefits, virtual reality training systems allow to trainers to deliver scientific, standardized and hands-on training experience ensuring that trainees learn to perform and deliver in the same way as they would be required to do the job.

Companies in the manufacturing and industrial sectors are discovering the benefits of virtual reality systems for training people to manufacture better, faster and safer. Realistic replicas of the actual machines are allowing trainees to make mistakes on a full-functioning equipment with any real loss or danger. Simulation-based training solutions offers a safe and cost-effective way to develop skills without the risk of injury and using their actual machines and equipment

Similar simulation-based training systems have been developed for the construction and mining sectors. With the help of heavy earth moving equipment simulators, new workers can be immersed in a risky mine environment to see and experience the risks while remaining absolutely safe. This type of experiential learning is invaluable in getting the safety lessons across and is more likely to be absorbed, especially by a generation growing up with video game technology.

After all, we all know that nothing gets better than the effectiveness of “learning by doing. ”

ITS TIME TO CHANGE GEARS

ITS TIME TO CHANGE GEARS

If we do a google search in terms of driver training schools in India, it shares a list of more than 7 lakh driving schools. Not to forget, there are many schools that have no presence on the web and some schools have more than one school.

In spite of lakhs of driver training schools, India has some of the world’s most dangerous roads. Road accidents kill 400 people on Indian roads every day. Accidents are killing more people in India than terrorism or natural disasters …. Isn’t that strange? Read More

How do we skill 45 lakh workers in the mining sector?

Why is it that mines in India have to issue license for Peruvians to come and work in mines in Rajasthan in large numbers to operate jumbo drill operators and forklift operators and mine blasters ?

Because we don’t have skilled manpower …. Only about 3.5 percent of the workforce is skilled in India.

In a recent interview Mr .Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship said the government will update the existing skill development policy to meet the current needs.

He wants to train the Youth of India to become skilled to operate heavy equipment infrastructure used in Indian Mines.

Simulation helps training operators facing dangerous or high risk situations, and gives them an opportunity to practice difficult maneuvers without the risk.Simulator based training provides operators with highly realistic environment with real machines, realistic weather and close to reality training scenarios that cannot be replicated with real life , on a real machine.
