There is no amount of classroom learning that can prepare someone for the physical and mental demands of some jobs; confined spaces, working at heights, fire, and hazard detection for example. Traditionally this type of training has had to be undertaken on the job – until now.

At Goleman we are experienced industry experts and trainers and as such we understand the practical realities and needs of on-boarding, training, and safety. This gives us incredible insight into how to use VRT effectively and so that trainees receive the best possible training, without disruption or downtime for the employer and the rest of their team.

Picture this:
A group of new recruits sit in a training room waiting for their site induction to begin. Their trainer approaches the room and looks at their expectant faces and groans. Why? He knows that as important as these sessions are, they take far too long and they’re not effective.

This type of training leads to too much downtime and there’s still on-site accidents – regardless of how long they all sit in that room going over the safety drills.

Contrast that with Virtual Reality Training. Trainees work through training modules that enable them to gain practical experience in simulated working conditions. And when they do something wrong – no one gets hurt and the trainee has an opportunity to learn from their mistake and try again.

Its little wonder companies using this type of training are seeing an up to 80% increase in the retention of knowledge amongst their team members.
Training doesn’t have to be ‘on the job’ to be hands-on.be Goleman Group’s NZQA Industry Training has recently been extended to include Virtual Reality Learning Experiences – the new way to learn ‘on the job’.

Virtual Reality Training (VRT) is safe, effective, true to life training enabling employers across New Zealand to safely train and induct their employees using immersive, simulated training environments.

Goleman Group CEO Joel Matsis: “There is no amount of classroom learning that can prepare someone for the physical and mental demands of some jobs; confined spaces, working at heights, fire, and hazard detection for example. Traditionally this type of training has had to be undertaken on the job – until now. At Goleman we are experienced industry experts and trainers and as such we understand the practical realities and needs of on-boarding, training, and safety. This gives us incredible insight into how to use VRT effectively and so that trainees receive the best possible training, without disruption or downtime for the employer and the rest of their team.”

What is a Virtual Reality Learning Experience?

Virtual Reality Training (VRT) is digital simulation of realistic situations for training purposes.

Trainees use a headset and controllers to interact with a 3D virtual setting ‘fitted out’ with simulated real-world tools, machinery, and instructors. The technology enables you to train and induct your teams safely and cost-effectively. And VRT is proven to increase engagement and knowledge retention amongst participants.

● Confined Space
● Height Safety
