VR Learning Experiences

A new way to learn on the job. Safe, immersive, true-to life training.

The future of training is here and it’s virtual

Our NZQA Industry Training empowers employees with the knowledge and skills to ensure they get home safely. And now our training environment has been extended to include our Virtual Reality Learning Experience; to safely train and induct your employees using immersive, simulated training environments.

VR training, as listed on this page, are not NZQA accredited programmes of learning, qualifications or learning outcomes.

What is a Virtual Reality Learning Experience?

Virtual Reality Training (VR Training) is digital simulation of realistic situations for training purposes. Trainees use a headset and controllers to interact with a 3D virtual setting ‘fitted out’ with simulated real-world tools, machinery, and instructors. The technology enables you to train and induct your teams safely and cost-effectively. And VR Training is proven to increase engagement and knowledge retention amongst participants.

Virtual Learning Experiences

VR Course Confined Space

Confined Space

The leading cause of confined space entry fatalities is inadequate training. Of 670 confined space fatalities in the US, 217 of them were due to atmospheric hazards. Goleman’s VR training experience allows participants to take a hands on approach in this very important element, ensuring a high degree of knowledge acquisition for New Zealand’s Confined Space workers.

VR Course Height Safety

Height Safety

In 2019 11% of workplace deaths in New Zealand were attributed to falls from heights, making this one of the leading causes of death in the workplace. Falling from heights injuries and deaths are avoidable with proper training and immersive experiences provided by Goleman Training.

VR Course Hazard Detection

Hazard Detection

High-level hazard identification is a critical safety skill we need as an absolute baseline in every workplace. Teaching our people to be effective identifiers of hazards assists greatly in reducing workplace incidents. Our VR training experience tests and re-tests people in all kinds of hazard identification scenarios, building their mind bank of awareness.

VR Course Manual Handling

Manual Handling

Injuries relating to manual handling are amongst the most costly and common in the workplace, affecting the lives of people and the insurance costs of companies. Teaching people effective manual handling techniques in a safe VR environment allows companies to reduce risk and improve safety.

VR Course Excavator Safety

Excavator Safety

Excavators intermix with below ground infrastructure, people at ground level and electrical infrastructure often above eye view. Our module assists participants to complete pre-start safety checks, learn, undertake and review pre-start and operating processes and ensure they operate equipment with an awareness of the hazards.

VR Course Fire Safety

Fire Safety

Keep your people fire ready with this 15-minute virtual reality experience that will hone their skills and protect your most valued assets.

VR Course Chainsaw Safety

Chainsaw Safety

There is no better way to learn than on the tools, and a Goleman Training Safety VR Learning Experience delivers accelerated training, virtually and safely. Learners develop competency in general safety, operation and maintenance. Minimise the risk associated with chainsaw operation, on-demand, on-site and on budget.

VR Course Site Induction

Site Induction

Our Site Induction VR Learning Experience is fully customisable thanks to our collection of off the shelf assets which includes all common workplace equipment. From Fire Exinguishers to First Aid Kits, our Site Induction Learning Expeirence allows you to place equipment exactly where you want on site.

Benefits of Virtual Reality Learning Experiences For You & Your Team

There is no amount of classroom learning that can prepare someone for the physical and mental demands of some jobs; confined spaces, working at heights, fire, and hazard detection for example. Real learning happens in the field and on the work-site – until now.

On the Job/Practical learning has long been considered the most effective way to learn and studies have shown that on the job experience increases the quality of learning and trainee retention by 75-90%. With Virtual Reality Training you can give your employees the experience they need to confidently step into the job you’ve hired them to do. But more than that, you can expose them to environments and scenarios that could be too costly or impossible to replicate in any other training situation. The immersive nature of this type of training saves money, time and protects the safety of co-workers who would normally be exposed to the trainee whilst they are learning.

No one gets hurt.

No downtime.

And when mistakes happen, no one gets hurt, there’s no downtime for other team members and no job-site gets shut down. Instead, the trainee will ‘enter a room’ where their mistakes are outlined and explained, and they will be shown what they could have done differently.

At Goleman we are experienced industry experts and trainers and as such we understand the practical realities and needs of on-boarding, training, and safety. This gives us incredible insight into how to use VR Training effectively and so that trainees receive the best possible training, without disruption or downtime for you and the rest of your team.
