Immersive Learning

Immersive Learning is a delivery technique designed to simulate the reality of critical incident management. Immersed in a realistic environment, students can experience the decision-making process and understand the complex issues involved.

Immersive Learning develops and delivers immersive learning exercises which simulate the reality of critical incident management. Delegates, immersed in a realistic environment, are able to experience the decision-making process and the complex issues facing the police and ​​other agencies. Immersive Learning delivers these exercises for all ranks and levels within the police service and partner agencies.

​​Immersive Learning uses the simulation system and methodology of 'Hydra' to recreate live incidents such as train derailments, plane crashes, riots and armed sieges, or major crime investigations. These exercises include Public Order Command at Gold, Silver and Bronze levels, Multi Agency Child Protection, and Critical Incident Management for sergeants and inspectors.

​​Immersive Learning also use the debriefing system 10,000 Volts. This is a technology assisted debriefing tool which uses networked computers to capture text input from an unlimited number of anonymous sources simultaneously. The data is immediately visible to all users as it enters the system, although it remains non-attributable to source. ​
