XR training will be made available to numerous students and workers through the Dual FP program.
EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce for Spain to bring vocational-based XR training to companies that participate in the Dual VET Program (a program co-financed by the European Social Fund through the Operational Program on Employment, Training and Entrepreneurship.
Among these programs, the Dual FP Program is designed to support and advise companies interested in participating in the field of Dual VET. With the health crisis generated by COVID meaning that much of the face-to-face training had to be suspended, the Chamber partnered with EON Reality to provide companies with the possibility of immersive XR training. Not only will EON-XR and related technologies enable students to continue their learning and training through the program, but the framework will be in place to offer AR, VR, and XR alternatives in the future as well.
“We’re so glad that we’re able to help Spain’s Chamber of Commerce bring in EON-XR to modernize and digitize their vocational training. Government programs like this are a key part of improving the efficiency of transferring knowledge and skills from one generation of workers to the next, and that is the core principle that EON Reality is built upon. We hope to see the continuation of knowledge transfer improve and grow through XR training for many years and generations to come.”Dan LejerskarFounder of EON Reality
In addition to the pressing need for XR vocational training due to COVID, the collaboration will also allow many small-to-medium sized enterprises to access EON-XR going forward as well. Through the world’s leading AR and VR platform for industry and education, these businesses will likely be able to transform their overall operations, training, onboarding, and other procedures to become more efficient and effective compared to traditional methods.
“In the context in which we are currently in, it is essential to promote FP and Dual VET to respond to an increasingly competitive work environment. From the Chamber of Spain, we believe that it is a much-needed educational modality in our society because of its enormous potential to form from practice. To do this and more in these times when mobility and face-to-face interactions are limited, the alternative offered by AR and VR are an innovative tool that can respond to the needs of those companies that have decided to bet on this model.”David NavarroDeputy Director of the Area of Employment, Training and Entrepreneurship for Spain’s Chamber of Commerce
