Immersive Training with Virtual Reality

There is a new way to train staff that improves engagement, reinforces learning and reduces time to competency.


Safety Training

Why Use Virtual Immersive Training?

In the last few years, virtual reality has evolved from science fiction to reality. Predominantly fuelled by billions of dollars of investment from Meta, high-quality, realistic VR is now accessible to anyone through the various low-cost, self-contained VR headsets on the market of which Meta (Facebook) now hold 75% of the market share.

These advances in technology mean that you can now carry out tasks with full interactivity in virtual spaces just as it is in real life. Although adoption has been slow in the consumer space, Enterprise has seen huge value in being able to use VR safety training to train staff safely and effectively in controlled virtual environments.

VR Training Applications

VR is the perfect channel to deliver training on tasks that might be low volume but high risk, or scenarios that can’t be easily carried out in the real world due to safety risks or limited access to equipment and machinery.

In industrial environments and large complex facilities, equipment often runs 24/7. In these situations, the only way to learn is by shadowing an experienced user on site which can take months. By building an interactive digital twin, staff can train in safe, controlled environments and become expert operators before stepping foot onsite. The benefits of VR training are huge; staff are trained much faster, there is no reliance on the existing operators, and knowledge is captured and transferred for the future.

Luminous VR Training Platform

Our Platform is an end-to-end solution for authoring, managing and deploying Immersive multiuser virtual reality training for hundreds or even thousands of students.

What makes our solution standout is that it provides a visual scripting tool (FLOW), enabling easy creation of performance-based, feature-rich VR training content. This content is then controlled and delivered via our VR Platform (PORTAL) and our single launcher application.


  • Creating VR training material
  • Supervising users & classes
  • Assessing students progress
  • Scheduling and monitoring multiuser VR training
  • Delivering assigned content via VR/Desktop
  • Managing content across multiple devices
  • Capturing training analytics & producing reports



  • The easiest way to get started is to sign up for a free 30-day demo of our ‘off the shelf’ VR safety skills training scenario.

  • We recommend using all in one VR headsets like the HTC Focus 3 & Elite or Meta Quest 3. These range from £400 – £1000.

  • Our off the shelf scenarios start from £950 a month with up to 10 device installs and unlimited users.

  • Creating a bespoke pilot requires more time and investment. The Luminous team would work with you to identify a high-value use case and develop a plan to then evaluate the training and build the business case to roll it out. For bespoke projects, you do need to have a high volume of users to justify the ROI or deliver training that is very expensive or impossible to deliver traditionally. We would recommend a budget of between £50k – £100k for a full pilot project.

  • For the right scenario and application, the business benefits can be huge – such as increased engagement, faster time to competency, reduced risk, standardisation, and improved reporting and tracking.
