Next Generation (NxG) Webinar Series
Training in an Immersive WorldThursday, Aug. 19 | 1 p.m. Central
Safety training can be long, boring and repetitive. You can increase engagement by using 3D visualization platforms like virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR). These technologies immerse trainees in the experience and help them feel more engaged by interacting with the subject matter. Boosting engagement and knowledge retention should reduce training time and ultimately decrease accidents at job sites. This webinar will explore how advanced visualization training is taking safety training to a new level in the industry.
