Utilising VR Technology in Employment

Industry partners utilise VR technology to easily showcase work environments and various career opportunities to job seekers.
Training & Assessment
Most SkillsVR modules have learning outcomes modeled against industry standards. Learners are trained and assessed automatically in VR.
After successful completion of training and assessment in VR, job seekers can earn certifications such as a SiteSafe Foundation Passport that further aids their career journey.

About the VR Job Expo

The virtual reality Confined Spaces training module covers equipment, risks, and responsibilities for typical enclosed-work scenarios, giving learners hands-on experience to cement theory into practice.

In this module, learners gain foundational knowledge on the safety needs and paperwork required to do confined space work. They also work through its potential dangers by monitoring an entrant. This safe but realistic setting provides highly engaging context for better learning outcomes.
