Companies in the industrial maintenance sector are struggling to find and train qualified technical staff to operate high pressure systems for contract jobs. Even with requisite certifications, staff often lack the knowledge and skills to properly operate the equipment, which can cause malfunctions and damage, delays, risks and longer working hours that increase service costs.
Parable teamed up with Rotterdam-based e-learning company Deftiq, and industry partners Doornbos, EID and Mourik, to explore how they could improve training with high-pressure units. Together they developed the market’s first integrated e-learning + VR training solution where staff can develop the knowledge and hands-on skills required for the job. Combining the best of both learning methods gives students an active learning experience that blends theoretical knowledge with practical skills and reduces the time required to be job ready.
