South Korean FRS invests in simulation training

Incident command training using virtual reality and simulated scenarios is gaining serious ground in South Korea, which an article in the South Korean 119 Plus magazine (a publication for the fire and rescue services) has put a spotlight on. Our South Korean users each have training facilities with hundreds of square metres at their disposal, alongside state-of-the-art equipment.

It is clear that in South Korea, using VR technologies for education, training and assessment of first responders is a priority. Earlier this year, the South Korean National Fire Agency announced that they will be pushing for a redesign of the command capability development program, which uses simulation training and traditional teaching methods, in an effort to improve and expand the use of simulation training. They will also be introducing a new incident command evaluation certification system to ensure their capability. South Korea currently has three (soon four) outstanding incident command training facilities which all use XVR Simulation
