How simulators are used in training programmes
The simulator as the main instrument of the training programme.
Objective: for participants to practice as many times as possible.
Rather than theory teaching tools, they are normally used in environments where it is difficult to put the theory into action. Users can access the simulations from their workplace and even from home if they wish.
Use of the simulator to map an individual’s basic skills.
Objective: to measure the skill levels of a given group of individuals.
This enables us to set skills development goals, as well as to design training courses that are tailored to the needs of each individual and to select the most suitable person for each role.
Use of the simulator for revision during classes. Simulations are done in groups and then discussed.
Objective: to clear up any doubts regarding the theory and take understanding of the techniques one step further.
Often users subsequently take advantage of the simulator by themselves.
