The XVR Simulation Platform is being utilised all over the world. It all started in the Netherlands.
Since then we have expanded throughout Europe, Australia, North America and Asia.
We value building relationships with our users. We are proud of our very loyal and enthusiastic client base.
As much as we believe in our solutions, we would love for you to hear it from our users, as they are just as enthusiastic.
- Dave Collingwood - Head of Training for Fire - Humberside Fire & Rescue Service
"It’s limitless what you can do with it. In a time where it’s difficult to recreate certain environments, this is your perfect answer."
- Lee Mi Gyeong, student at the NFSA
"It was a good opportunity to grow my command abilities as a commander, including the deployment of resources, judgment of situations, and decision-making in unexpected situations. I hope many commanders can feel and learn as much as I do through these experiences."
- Lee Mu-song, CICT Instructor at Gyeonggi-do Fire Service Academy
"Our individual training method for squad commanders works on a rotation basis, and it is the most representative education of the CICT, and it is a training that has recently had a great influence throughout South Korea. The training results are having a very good effect on the entire Gyeonggi Fire Department."
- Michael Baudette – VP of Security and Emergency Management – Ottawa International Airport Authority
"Using XVR allows our teams to learn new procedures or review current ones in a safe and positive learning environment before running full-scale drills and exercises."
- Martin Gruner – Simulation Trainer – Police Academy of Rhineland-Palatinate
"Simulation is not just a one-way process for everyday police work; it must be experienced, and simulation is always an interdisciplinary process. We ultimately regard simulation as a holistic approach."
- Wim van Vaerenberg – Chief Expert – Provincial Fire Service School, Flemish Brabant
"XVR Simulation is a company that develops software customised for emergency services, and with a knowledge about emergency services and a passion that you rarely see!"
- Capt. Ron Chua - Course Commander at the Leadership Development Center - Singapore Civil Defence Academy
"The ability to coordinate multiple trainees who are geographically separated from me reduces the hassle we face in conducting the training centrally in the academy."
- Jeroen Antoons - advisor/specialist professional competence - Veiligheidsregio Drenthe
"I think this tool will really engage our people and heighten immersion. There’s no noise, no loud sounds, and as an instructor, you can focus on your story. But you can also retell your story over and over again because you begin with a new starting point which will be the same for everyone."
- Leon Bloem - Developer Serious Gaming & e-Learning - Royal Netherlands Marechaussee
"I absolutely believe you'll be better off training with XVR, and I really see the added value for the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee."
- Chris Wainwright - Watchmanager Hereford & Worcester Fire Rescue Service
"You can't get anything better than XVR. In the current market, it's the system to go for. The feedback we get from our students is very positive, they feel like they have been at the incident."
- Thomas Patrick - Station manager Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service
"Training with XVR allows us in Lincolnshire to create real life scenarios making it easier to train lots of people, whilst reducing the costs and maximising our resources. XVR is easier to transport around our large county, its simple to set up and you can work through numerous scenarios in a condensed period of time"
- Marek Link - Estonian Academy of Security Sciences
"We should not compare “live” training against virtual simulation training. It is not possible to say which is better – hammer or screwdriver. Every tool serves a purpose and in reality the more tools we have in the toolbox the better."
- Gerald Stoffer – Functioneel beheerder VGGM
"We specifically designed this complete trainingcentre to be used with XVR. We offer all sorts of training here, like multi-agency and one on one incident commander training. We've fitted the entire centre with 4K screens, offering the best possible experience."
- Jaap de Geus - UMCG Ambulancezorg
"To me, the biggest benefit of virtual reality is that you have endless possibilities to build and adapt scenarios."
- Detlef Damaske - Lower Saxony Academy for Fire and Disaster Response, Germany
"Virtual reality enables us to achieve a better learning outcome."
- Kev O’Connor - Station Manager Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service
"XVR enables us to recreate large scale incidents in a virtual reality (VR) world which in real life would require a vast amount of resources and the cost implications of that would be very high."
- Mark Roberts - Incident Command Training Instructor RBFRS
"Our students have commented, on numerous Incident Command Foundation courses, that the high rise XVR scenario provides them a steep learning curve in terms of incident command skills."

Want to know what solutions simulation has offer to your organisation? Together with a number of customers,
we’ve outlined the multiple advantages.
How do they use XVR?
The flexibility of the XVR Platform allows users to get really creative with their training set-ups. Create a fully immersive set-up that completely surrounds you with XVR On Scene, or simply access the XVR Platform on a budget laptop via the cloud from your own couch. Train multiple trainees at once in a dedicated XVR training centre, or create a mobile solution in a bus, driving from location to location.
The Incident Command Training Centre (ICTC) covers two floors. Both floors feature video surveillance for instructors, who can run the exercises from two control stations. The simulation centre can simulate the deployment of up to 26 persons simultaneously and will perform a full team training approximately 12 times per year. On top of that, a large number of smaller individual and team trainings will take place.
Fire brigades from all over Switzerland are able to train with the XVR Platform thanks to an ingenious training concept of CoNet. CoNet has modified an old passenger bus to a fully functional and driveable training centre.
Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service
Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service demonstrate why and how they use XVR. They are especially keen on modifying stock environments to resemble areas of local risk. The video was created to internally showcase the flexibility and versatility of XVR On Scene.
Fire Service College
"In order to ensure the highest possible immersion for our participants, and hopefully provide them with a valuable addition to their training program, we’re using a 360 degrees dome, which surrounds the participants completely."
