In high-risk fields, immersive technology offers total engagement in a simulated learning environment. That's a stark contrast to traditional training that can take many hours and require exposure to hazards.
For traditional training, some organizations must invest in expensive setups to simulate the work environment or send employees to a destination to participate in a large-scale simulation a few times a year. These traditional options can be costly and difficult to accurately reproduce—requiring significant resources, people hours, actors, and facilities.
For example, during jumpmaster training, the risk of getting hurt or the consequences of not pulling the parachute at the right time are high. When surgery complications arise, doctors have to keep calm. Aircraft carriers at times only have days or hours to prepare for a mission response. With tensions high, every second counts while preparing for a specialized task.
