DEKRA Fire Alarm System Training with VR Training
DEKRA Automobil GmbH uses its fire alarm system training via Virtual Reality to provide more sustainable training for its trainees to become testing experts, allowing them to repeat and modify the training as often as they wish.
Final examinations for testing experts
Fire alarm system training
Being independent of the availability of real buildings
Success rates in final examinations
More frequent learning
Connecting theory and skills
Adjustable training intensity
High Failure Rate
As part of preventive fire protection, fire alarm systems must be regularly inspected by testing experts. The qualification as a testing expert can be considered a great challenge, as the final examinations at the respective chambers of engineers place great demands on the trainees in terms of theory and practice. Often, classroom training for the theory and a mentor/mentee principle in a real customer assignment failed to prepare adequately for these examinations, resulting in high failure rates.
With the help of our 3spin Learning Platform, we integrated an additional teaching-learning method into the training.
First Practical Experience
Trainees can gain their first practical experience outside of a real testing assignment at the customer's premises in the company of a recognised testing expert, while being guided by experienced trainers during the VR test. The intensity of the training can be varied according to the trainee's level of knowledge and can be repeated as often as desired.
Higher Success Rates in Final Examinations
As a new additional teaching-learning method, DEKRA's VR training for fire alarm systems provides a link between theory (knowledge transfer) and the mentor/mentee principle (skills). This training boosts the quality of their courses while achieving significantly higher learning successes.
Better Learning Outcomes
As a result, success rates in the final examinations to become an inspection expert at the respective chambers of engineers have increased.
