Instructors Use Virtual Reality Technology in HVAC Classes
“As we strive to be at the forefront of providing the latest technology for our students, this approach prepares our graduates to bring an innovative mindset to the workplace,” Barnhill continued. “Virtual reality technologies and controls may also be helpful when integrated into the workplace. In the future, workers could even perform their jobs remotely, not unlike a pilot flying a drone.”
Mimbus believes in the future of skills and trades and is committed to preserving those skills. The college hopes to continue to work with the company to integrate technology into teaching that will help recruit and train students from all backgrounds.
