Virtual simulators implementation for training skills among specialists of different kinds makes it possible not to use expensive equipment, which often requires transportation and installation, maintenance and readjustment, modernization and linking to a specific location.

Some emergency procedures are difficult to practice in real life and, especially, using the equipment. But virtual simulators make it possible not only to recreate an emergency situation, but also to adjust human behaviour in it. It is also possible to stimulate equipment failures and evaluate human behaviour when finding and eliminating the trouble. Elements of virtual reality give the effect of complete immersion in such cases.

Using the experience of our Russian colleagues in the chosen direction allows us to guarantee the functioning of the academic, research and practice laboratory of virtual reality at the Faculty of Information Technologies at PSU. It should be noted that the laboratory of virtual reality at PSU is the first university laboratory in Belarus.
