If your company requires training in the use of potentially dangerous equipment, then eLearning can help your instructors teach theory to your learners.
By using online training, your learners can show up on the day of practical training having already covered the vital theory training in their own time and at their own pace. In situations like working at heights or dealing with hazardous materials, eLearning combined with Virtual Reality can contribute to risk mitigation during training events.
Knowledge transfer and skills acquisition
When the skills training is within a potentially dangerous environment - with heavy machinery, or in the oil and gas industry, for example - theory training is of utmost importance. At Bolt Learning, we have developed theory training via eLearning modules - in a safe environment, allowing learners to obtain the required knowledge before moving onto the practical skills acquisition training. When moved online, theory training eliminates the complexities of logistics, as the modules are hosted on a cloud-based LMS. Regularly updated, in multiple languages and easy to download for instructors, online theory training can compress the time needed to learn from months into days.
Bridging the gap with Virtual Reality
VR provides an immersive learning environment and thus bridges the gap between knowledge transfer and skill acquisition. Tasks that are potentially dangerous for a trainee to practice in real life can be practiced safely in a virtual experience. VR reduces wear and tear on the machinery, as well as the possibility of injury or liability. Learners can safely repeat experiences that otherwise would not be possible in a real-world situation.
