Panther President and COO Noah Davis also added, “Portable, eLearning-based VREs can reach out to a larger trainee population in a cost-effective manner while providing new learning experiences that are far more price competitive to deliver. Students who struggle to pass their respective state level exams to become a licensed tech will find VREs as an attractive learning assist tool given their rich, interactive environment.

The eLearning course will be featured in a 3D virtual reality segment that enables students to experience the lab in the comfort of their own homes. Brown will also be launching a new website aimed to cater to HVAC contractors and technicians.
