Ways Training Simulations Can Help Employees Learn Their Jobs

  • Learn by doing. Everyone learns differently, but one way that most people learn best is to learn by doing. Training simulations allow the employee to learn how to perform specific tasks of their job by actually acting it out in a controlled setting. Learning by doing ensures that employees will have greater retention of the things they’ve learned and they are more apt to enjoy the training itself.
  • Customizable. 3D simulations are a great tool to use for just about any training required. These simulations can be customized to your specific needs, so there’s no need to worry about the course not addressing the things pertinent to each job position.
  • Tracking enabled. Tracking a user’s progress is essential in the design of any training course. This helps management know where the employee is at in training, as well as how well they are doing. Most 3D simulations cans conform to AICC and/or SCORM standards for tracking. In addition, training simulations can be integrated into your learning management system (LMS) for better tracking.
  • Interactive and engaging. Sitting through a training course can be a long and boring process. With technology today, there’s no reason why employee training needs to be boring. Training simulations breathe life into your employee training courses and keep people engaged and entertained while they are learning.
  • Free to make mistakes. The process of learning anything naturally involves some mistakes being made. Training simulations offer a controlled environment to learn in, which allows an employee to make mistakes without any devastating consequences. Knowing that they are learning in a safe environment gives employees the ability to engage in the simulation without worrying about making a mistake or causing injury.
