Heavy industries like Oil & Gas, Mining and Construction share some unique characteristics and challenges. Driven by regulatory requirements and the need to optimize productivity in a competitive marketplace, employers are increasingly striving to implement competency-based training programs to address these challenges.
- The changing demographic of new workers - young, video game players, 18-25 years old
- Workers with little or no post secondary education
- Visually oriented, experiential learners who render traditional teaching methods obsolete
- Unique safety issues that contribute to accidents and reduced productivity
- New workers are at high risk of incidents involving injury or equipment damage
- Regulations demanding demonstrable measures to improve employee competence and workplace safety
Using the same powerfully engrossing techniques that fuel entertainment games, Industrial Games provide learners with the ability to explore and review industrial settings in ways that minimize learning time and maximize retention and safety. Industrial Games are changing the landscape of what is possible in the world of learning, preparing, and understanding, ensuring all students have the ability to experience and perform job activities in a safe, controlled learning environment before tackling the real world by presenting information in an easy-to-understand, multi-modal format. Damage to costly equipment, injuries, and loss of life can be drastically reduced through the training provided by Industrial Games. After completing one of Coole Immersive's industrial training simulations, students will have the necessary knowledge to transition from a realistic training environment to the workplace without the financial and physical risks attached to on-the-job learning.
What can Industrial Games do for you?
- Provide the ‘underpinning knowledge’ for skills competency
- Industry-wide standards and competency profiles provide the metrics for employers to meet regulatory requirements while mitigating the risk of incidents. This also serves to provide skill portability between employers.
- Decrease time to competency. Accelerated learning reduces the “risk window” and gets workers to competency much more quickly, contributing to increased productivity.
- Develop critical thinking skills
- Reduce risk and exposure of employees to accidents
- Reduce risk and exposure of employers to litigation
- Provide a “Safe place to fail” – learners gain an understanding of the consequences of bad choices
- Provide a documented and auditable skills validation process
- Capture experienced worker's knowledge
- Lower per trainee cost as trainee volume increases
- Proceed at learner's pace, for more efficient learning
