Virtual Reality Is Saving Money While Closing the Skilled Labor Gap
Energy and utility companies are facing a serious shortage of skilled labor. On top of that, the special equipment workers need to learn to use may not be easy to access without traveling to remote locations, like an offshore oil rig, or shutting down production equipment to conduct the teaching. This makes training a very costly effort, but one that you need to get right in order to train the next generation of engineers and field workers.
From oil and gas industry to renewables, energy and utilities need a training solution that can bridge the skills gap by providing real world experience without real world cost and risk. That’s where virtual reality (VR) can help. VR training solutions for oil and gas industry provide an immersive experience for learning hard skills that has been proven to be extremely effective at teaching the technology and procedures needed for successful operation.
