Riding the Virtual Wave: Training Elevator Technicians in a New Reality


In the days of old, elevator technicians had to learn the ropes (quite literally) through hands-on experience, often navigating dangerous scenarios and making rookie mistakes. But with the advent of technology, we’re stepping out of those dark ages and into the world of Virtual Reality (VR). Coupled with AuditMate, a SaaS elevator audit software, the training game is being revolutionized. So, let’s take a ride through this exciting virtual journey and see how the world of elevator tech training is leveling up!

Elevating the Training Experience with VR

VR: More than Just a Gamer’s Paradise

You might be thinking, “Isn’t VR all about gaming and fighting dragons?” Well, think again! VR provides:

  • Real-world Simulation: Allows technicians to face challenging scenarios without the real-world risk.
  • Interactive Learning: A far cry from boring textbooks and tedious classes.
  • Immediate Feedback: Get instant pointers and corrections, speeding up the learning curve.

Tackling the Learning Curve Head-On

Remember the saying, “You’ve got to crack a few eggs to make an omelet?” Thankfully, with VR, those broken eggs are just pixels! Trainees can:

  • Make mistakes without real-world consequences.
  • Test out complex scenarios without risking life or equipment.
  • Dive deep into the mechanics of an elevator in a fully immersive environment.
