ASTM International Partners with 360 Immersive to Launch VR Safety Training Program
ASTM International has announced the launch of My Virtual Safety Trainer (MVST) – a cutting edge virtual reality (VR) safety training program that’s available through the ASTM Learning Center.
MVST consists of more than 50 self-paced eLearning modules that include VR simulations and gamified content. This type of immersive training has been statistically proven to positively impact attention spans, leading to increased retention rates, engagement levels, and personal enjoyment during training sessions. Each learning objective reflects environments and scenarios commonly found in the construction and general industry sectors.
“Our existing training on ASTM concrete, cement asphalt, and soil standards provide a strong foundation for those in construction materials testing,” says Athena Huss, manager of OnDemand Solutions at ASTM International. “Providing 360 Immersive’s safety courses will strengthen our offerings to provide a comprehensive learning experience for those in the lab and in the field.”
“We are pleased to partner with ASTM International because of their mission to improve lives on a global scale,” says Jennifer Lastra, co-founder at 360 Immersive. “At 360 Immersive, we uphold similar high standards by ensuring learners have access to quality safety training that’s innovative, interactive, and inspiring. It’s through our cooperative arrangement that we can combine our passion to positively impact the overall well-being of individuals while also creating safer workplaces. I can’t think of a better way to distribute MVST than doing so alongside ASTM’s industry leading standards-based eLearning offerings.”
