FAQ

What other Next World training experiences are available?

Confined Space Entry, Manual Handling, Working at Heights, Hazard Spotting, Excavator Operations (including loading and unloading from a trailer), and Hazard and Risk Management. We can also create inductions custom to your business and other bespoke experiences, contact us for pricing.

Is VR just for young people?

Interestingly, we found by the third VR experience, regardless of age, all groups had gained the same amount of competency in using VR. Younger generations may be faster to initially pick up the coordination and techniques required due to being exposed to gaming consoles and similar technology at a younger age but longer term, age was no barrier to successful VR training.

How long should I allow for a VR training experience?

The experiences themselves take 20-25 minutes to complete, from adjusting to the headset, to cleaning it afterwards. It is recommended to allow 45 minutes for the full process and experience.

How many experiences do I get in a month’s subscription?

The subscription price includes unlimited use. Based on the 45 minute per training recommendation, with a single headset, typically, you’d be able to conduct up to 8-10 experiences in a single day. That’s an opportunity for nearly 300 training experiences per month.

Are you locked-in for a minimum term?

All our subscriptions are month-to-month. Cancel any time.

I have my own headset. Is it compatible with Next World’s experiences?

Our experiences currently support Oculus Go and Oculus Quest. If your organisation uses a different headset, please contact us for custom build pricing options.

If I cancel, do I get to keep the headset?

If you choose to cancel your subscription, you’ll need to return your headset within 7 working days in the pre-paid post bag provided.

How long does take for my VR package to arrive?

From the time of payment, please allow 8-10 days for shipping. If you have your own headset, we can deploy the training for you remotely within 1-2 working days.

If I purchase a single product, can I later upgrade to a bundle?

Yes, this can all be deployed for you remotely.
