The human arsenal might be deep beyond all known limits but it has still never possessed anything more valuable than that tendency of ours to grow on a consistent basis. We say this because the stated tendency has managed to fetch us some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a rather unique member of the group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is based on its skill-set, which was unprecedented enough to guide us towards a reality that we couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, a closer look should be able to reveal how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence and made it the ultimate centrepiece of every horizon. Now, having such a tool run the show did scale up our experience from all conceivable directions, but even after reaching so far ahead, this prodigious concept called technology will somehow continue to bring out the goods. The same, if anything, has turned more evident over the recent past, and assuming a newly-launched program shakes out just like we envision, it will only propel that trend to far greater heights in the near future and beyond.
Interplay Learning, the leading provider of online and virtual reality training for the essential skilled trades, has officially launched a new technology-driven apprenticeship program, which is designed to help employers in training their workforce more efficiently. As per certain reports, the program provides that utility by empowering every participating employer to create unique on-the-job training experiences. But how does it help on a practical note? Well, when you combine on-site learning with Interplay’s video courses and immersive 3D simulations, you basically make it possible for employees to learn new skills and troubleshooting strategies in a virtual, and therefore, much safer environment. This environment, on its part, can also be accessed through various different avenues, including desktop, laptop, tablet, and even a dedicated virtual reality headset. However, the stated apprenticeship program isn’t just restricted to directly educating the workers. Instead, it further reduces the employer’s burden through seamless fulfillment of various administrative tasks, such as reporting monthly RTI, tracking apprentices’ ongoing engagement, and interacting with the DOL and state apprenticeship agencies.
“We’re thrilled to introduce our innovative, tech-forward approach to apprenticeship,” said Doug Donovan, founder and CEO of Interplay Learning. “With one of the first digital and off-the-shelf solutions for apprenticeships, we seek to eliminate the pain points existing today for employers, while also providing them with a powerful training solution to address the skills gap problem in the U.S. What has traditionally been complex and especially daunting for small and medium businesses, we have streamlined the process to set up an apprenticeship program and given contractors a tool to build a better-trained workforce.”
Founded in 2016, Interplay Learning has become a trusted name for all the skilled trade employers who require scalable training solutions to ensure proper function. The company has achieved that purely on the back of its virtual reality platform, which has everything from expert-led video courses and comprehensive simulations to knowledge checks and custom learning paths. At the moment, Interplay is serving a clientele that stretches across sectors like HVAC, plumbing, electrical, solar, hospitality, multifamily maintenance, facilities maintenance, and more. The company’s excellence in what it does, though, can be reaffirmed by the fact that it has already earned recognition across several best-in-business lists, while also getting a shoutout in the Fast Company’s 2021 World Changing Ideas Awards.
