Let’s Bridge The Skill Transition Gap With VR Training
The biggest challenge faced by the industries today is the skill transition. So, how was this skill transition done before? Earlier, A skillful worker willingly takes up the responsibility to guide a considerable amount of newbies, giving them tips and tricks while they observe and insist on repetition when they do the task to master it. But this wasn’t systematically done because a skilled worker can choose whether to guide or not. So,if the new hires are lucky enough, that worker might cut them some slack. Otherwise, the only way to master the trade for a newbie is trial and error.
Over the years, owing to the cultural shift in the workplace, a systematic training system was introduced which was less vocational and more theoretical, that is, the training was more oral than practical. The result of this cultural shift was the loss of skill. The shortage of skilled workers and this training method lead to “no skill transition”.
But, today, with technological advancement, skill transition is possible. It is even made smoother as there is no necessity for the presence of a skilled trainer. Wondering how? It can be done by immersive training in Virtual Reality. Cloning the physical set up of the workplace and equipment in VR, the trainees can be given an experience closer to hands-on experience in real-time letting them practise the task till they understand it and master it. This can greatly improve their confidence and performance while they work in the real field. Yes! VR can bridge the skill transition gap.
