Speaker: Keith Noble, Commander, Austin-Travis County EMS
Do you think AR/VR training is a more affordable way to train?
Keith Noble: Okay, so our typical training would involve, let's just say it's a 30 person MCI. I would have to get either 30 live people or we have to get 30 dummies or mannequins to do that training. We also need to support staff for that training. So you need some procters, you need some note takers, you need someone to run the training And then you have in our organization about 550 employees that we would need to run through that training. So That's 550 people times, probably two hours of overtime time, all the other staff that you have to do it. And that's a lot of money and that's a lot of reasons to go towards something that needs to be done. But the VR And AR Technology, you can do it at a fraction of the cost and you can get better, bigger benefit, at least in my mind is you can do it multiple times and anywhere and you can change the scenario. So that's probably the biggest reason I really like this technology.
