Describing the impact of SIMmersion technology in the medical training field...

I can honestly say that this one of the best trainings I have gone to in my 30 years of service.

Karen Kilpatrick, Lt. Major
Crimes/Internal Affairs, Pitt County (NC) Sheriff's Office

I have seen this (SIMmersion's) work and highly endorse its use where appropriate, and affordable. My personal assessment is that it delivers very good training in a portable and highly useable form.


It felt so realistic to the participants, they also viewed it as a chance to overcome their fear of the situation through practice and to get better at it.

Leaders in their respective industries discuss working with SIMmersion and their satisfaction with the efficacy of the technology...

As an expert in human performance management, training, and general Industrial-Organizational Psychology, I feel comfortable in saying that the technology that your organization brings to the world really does move the world of training forward in quantum leaps. In fact, I have discussed this technology in the doctoral classroom for 17 years, suggesting that when 'it' is available, our ability to train will move in directions that are almost unimaginable.

Describing the work with SIMmersion founder, Dale Olsen, to create an interview and interrogation simulation...

The SIMmersion technology overcomes the serious shortcomings associated with role-playing, traditionally used for practice.

Users readily imputed feelings and thoughts to the virtual character and referred to their use of the system as conversation. Further, users perceived their experience as useful and reported that it had increased their interest in talking with people.

Virtual Conversation Partner for Adults with Autism

The simulation training conversations were very helpful for my learning process; I had never seen that before and I can see advantages to this way of interacting with the course material. The course encouraged me to think deliberately about what I might say to a client like [the character] and was somewhat fun, too.

Review from the Talking to Patients About Health Risk Behaviors Simulation on the CDC Train website
Morris Bell, Ph.D.

SIMmersion simulation training users found it easy to use, enjoyed the experience, and thought it realistic and helpful. Almost all described the interview as anxiety provoking but said that the anxiety diminished as they became more skilled. They saw the benefit of its special features such as the Coach and the transcript, and they believed that they could learn the skills being taught through these methods.

Teaching Job Interview Skills to Psychiatrically Disabled People Using Virtual Interviewers

SIMmersion's game-based teaching methods are ideally suited to increasing the behavioral skills of healthcare clinicians. It's going to change how physicians are taught how to care for people with behavioral/social problems such as alcohol, drugs, weight, domestic violence, and mental health.

Never have I used the word 'break-through' to describe our programs. I use this word now.
