Over the weekend Auggmed 21st & 22nd April, Auggmed conducted a validation study at the West Yorkshire Police training facility in Carrgate.
This very busy weekend involved training 80 trainee police officers, either through the Auggmed platform in Virtual reality or a live scenario using actors, or a combination of these two forms of training. The officers were being trained on how to deal with a suspicious package for the first time. Each officer has been asked to complete three assessments: one before the training, one directly after the training, and one two months after training in order to test knowledge retention.
Data collected from this study will be analysed at a later date and will be used to perform a comparison between the different forms of training.
