Imagine a world where your budget has actually decreased by 30%. But, you are tasked to train more people, in less time.
And you’re limited to the space and resources of local physical locations with limited training time, equipment, and trainers. Not only that, there are fewer cadets and the morale of your team is at an all-time low. Not to mention that about half your team is still working through stress and trauma from the past 18 months. What if there is an emt training option up to this challenge that is both motivating and affordable?
Benefits Of VR/AR For Emergency Medical Services:
- A VR/AR program will enable EMS responders to potentially accelerate their certification through new emergency medical technology.
- With immersive headsets, first responders can walk through situations that they may face on the job without ever leaving their office or classroom.
- As EMS operations continue to advance EMT training and paramedic course, VR/AR training allows cadets to train more deeply and consistently for complex emergency medical situations.
VR Training, also known as Immersive Simulated Environment Training, provides the ability to train medical professionals without needing expensive equipment or time-consuming practice drills. VR training allows trainers to create an environment that simulates real-life scenarios. VR training has many benefits, including saving money which helps keep costs down and giving individuals more time to focus on critical tasks when delivering emergency medical care!

Scott Smith: Dr. Salazar, how do you normally train for it now?
Dr. Gil Salazar: You know, let me preface my answer by telling you I don’t think that brick and mortar MCI Training is really ever going to go away in terms of Moulages that we do and dressing people up.
Yeah. The problem that I see with modern learners is the motivation to do some pre-lesson learning.
So a lot of my students, the majority of them come in cold, apprehensive without a really solid background on what they’re about to do, making the time with us, which is very difficult to prepare and to plan making it less fruitful than we would like.
So they enter training like this. I see I foresee this type of technology being used not just as train somebody, but what a wonderful way to get somebody prepared for an actual training event that is live.
