Nexter Training is a specialist in educational engineering using the GVT® (Generic Virtual Training) VR training software developed and marketed by the company.
The services offered by NEXTER TRAINING are designed to facilitate access to information, make skills learning accessible regardless of location and bring forward innovative training concepts. Equipment performance is also dependent on personnel who are trained effectively in using it and maintaining it.
Education and Virtual Reality
Our training is designed to pass on knowledge and expertise to the teams who operate equipment, and those responsible for its maintenance.
To achieve these goals, our training services design, develop, deploy and maintain training systems tailored to the precise requirements set by our customers.
In the world of advanced systems, the task of defining the goals for a training program must address different groups of constraint:
· the increasing sophistication of environments and systems. An increasing need for expertise and no place for amateurism
· fewer items of equipment and environments that are difficult to access. Less availability for training
· equipment that is increasingly upgradable (largely as a result of electronic obsolescence management). Knowledge needs to be updated more frequently, generating greater cost
· the balance between time spent on training and time spent on operational tasks. Simultaneous training of the maximum number of trainees
· the hazards posed by the working environment. The need for many operations to be carried out in complete safety
The contribution made by the virtual environment and its associated potential for simulation offer an effective response to instructional needs. In the training context, this provides the ability to:
· adapt the theory/practical balance to suit the needs of each trainee without re-running courses
· reduce training costs by reducing or even eliminating the need to use real resources without re-running courses
· eliminate the risk of personal injury accidents
· eliminate the need to handle hazardous materials
· create scenarios for all types of learning that reflect the required level of complexity
· retain and build on specialist and atypical expertise and knowledge
Conventional training resources, such as classroom sessions, printed documentation or its electronic equivalent and Computer-Based Training, are good at providing trainees with basic knowledge.
Traditionally, the acquisition and continuation of expertise is based on practical experience gained by working on a simulator or on the actual equipment concerned. The immersive nature of GVT® makes it a valuable alternative for helping trainees to learn a particular type of expertise, since it complements traditional training resources and helps to make a course of learning more flexible.
