STRATEGIC ALLIANCE AGREEMENT
Bruce Dreany, President of Pro Rescue Services, based out of Edmonton, AB and Steve Zurakowski, President of Dynamic Vision Inc., based out of Calgary, AB, are pleased to announce a Strategic Alliance to deliver world-class Virtual Reality products and services to all industries focused on workplace safety and rescue.
This Alliance combines Pro Rescue Service’s expertise in safety and rescue services and Dynamic Vision’s expertise in Virtual Reality and advanced visualization and positions us to deliver the most effective, compelling safety & rescue learning and assessment solutions in the market today.
Virtual Reality provides industry with the ability to train or assess workers in immersive learning environments enabling them to learn and practice complex, technical tasks and procedures anywhere. Some hazardous or dangerous tasks rarely get practiced due to their nature and many procedures in a live plant environment are very expensive to practice as they require equipment or production to be interrupted or shutdown.
Studies on immersive learning document tremendous benefits to the learner. The ability to ‘learn-by-doing’ enhances the ability to learn more quickly and vastly improves a learner’s comprehension, knowledge retention and memory recall leading to safer industrial workplaces.
Bruce Dreany says, "Industry has come a long way in ensuring workers are certified and educated in a classroom. One problem, however, is that many people don’t learn well in a classroom. Another common problem is that certified workers do not routinely have their skills assessed or practice their learned techniques. Keeping your skills sharp is the most effective way of preventing safety incidents or responding to them if they do occur. Working with Dynamic Vision on this initiative to develop VR solutions for the safety industry is an exciting opportunity to bring greater safety to our clients and industries we serve."
Steve Zurakowski added, "Dynamic Vision has a long history of developing world class immersive learning and 3D visualization solutions and working closely with client Subject Matter Experts. The ability to work with the elite team of safety and rescue professionals at Pro Rescue Services, provides a deeper understanding of the safety industry and empowers us to deliver even more compelling and effective Virtual Reality training solutions."
