An MRO services is only as efficient as its technicians; hence effective training of the technicians makes great business sense. Digitalization of the existing training programs in VR environment can help make training more efficient and effective.
Virtual reality is making waves in a number of industries, but Aviation Industry is making the most use of it. Tecknotrove Systems creates customized environments in VR for training MRO technicians. The company generates a highly realistic virtual model of an aircraft, allowing the trainees to move around and interact with its systems.
Research has found that this VR training gives better results than traditional classroom methods, or even computer-based learning for the following reasons
- Creates a more interactive training environment
- Makes trainers less reliant on the availability of the physical part
- Greater knowledge transfer and higher retention
- Modules can be upgraded to reflect new technical developments
CONFINED SPACE TRAINING
Safety in the aviation industry is a vital issue. Many workers have injured in work related accidents and some die as well. Inadequate or insufficient training is often cited as a root cause for many injuries and incidences. Hands-on training in direct working environment provides only limited real-life opportunities and often fails to make a significant impact within the tense working environment itself.
Tecknotrove develops Virtual reality-based training programs that enable trainees to practice in the real-life working conditions without the associated risks. The VR training prepares workers for entry into confined spaces. Trainees acquire all knowledge required to perform in confined spaces safely and efficiently. VR headset and controller immerses the learner quickly into the virtual environment and ensures engagement during training. The VR program allows the trainees to practice repeatedly within a safe environment until they master the skill. Special attention is given to gas measurement, personal protective equipment, and emergency procedures during training.
Upon successful completion of the program trainees are be able to:
- Assess a confined space for entry,
- Prepare themselves for working in confined spaces
- Safely use equipment and personal protective equipment,
- Work confined space in accordance with procedures
- Manage Emergency situations in confined spaces.
