SiyonaTech initiated their Virtual Reality (VR) programme trial at West Herts college in Watford yesterday with a class of Diploma in Air Cabin Crew / Aviation students. The VR programme taught and tested the class on dealing correctly with an aircraft cabin fire. The trial, which is being conducted at colleges throughout the South-East of England, aims to investigate the effectiveness of such learning tools for these types of students and subjects, with particular regard to long-term retention.
