VR training programs offer a number of key advantages, such as:

- Offering realistic scenarios that provide an alternative to role playing
- Providing a safe space to practice
- Tracking results for learning analytics
The key to successful learning is to understand and solidify the link between desired learning outcomes and the type of technology used.
