Crescent then assigns training based on your group’s requirements. These requirements are based on regulatory, client, and employer expectations. The database allows the employer, employee, and any client designated personnel to be notified when an employee’s training is 30-60-90 days from expiration. These notifications are sent via email and will also be tracked by Crescent’s training staff. Crescent’s training staff manages scheduling students, or they can self-schedule based on their employer’s allowable privileges. Customized reports can be queried, or a standard weekly/monthly report can be sent to the employer to schedule training. Reports include training percentages, training needs, training percentages by group, specific course training percentages, training compliance, etc.
Virtual Reality Training
Virtual Reality is an innovative tool that enables a worker to be trained and evaluated without ever being put in a precarious position. Humans are intensely visual creatures. 90% of all the information that is sent to our brain is visual in nature, and 93% of all our communication is visual. With VR, training becomes more visual as the subject matter is presented in a visually stunning, 3D format that people will find far more appealing than regular text. Crescent has compiled training programs that are highly effective in conveying regulatory requirements, as well as applying the necessary skills testing to demonstrate proficiency and understanding of the material. Instructors provide classroom-based formal lectures to deliver the knowledge required to work safely. Students then take a knowledge test to demonstrate their understanding of the course material. The final step is to allows the student to become immersed in a virtual life like experience which enables the student to understand their equipment, physically inspect and function the gear, and to experience the feeling and visual aspects of the environment they will be working in which they work.
