SiyonaTech paid their second visit to the City of Oxford Further Education College on the 14th December as part of their Virtual Reality trial. In front of a range of interested visitors and observers from Oxford and other colleges, 16 first year students were put through their paces on the Aircraft Cabin Fire-Fighting programme.

All 16 passed and that now means the total number of students, from all participating colleges, who have successfully completed the programme stands at 43. This means almost half of the target sample group has qualified during the first academic term.

A tremendous achievement by all concerned, but especially the students who, despite the vast majority having no prior experience of VR, have thrown all of their efforts into passing the programme and gaining their Certificate of Achievement. For the SiyonaTech team this makes performing the trial doubly gratifying.
