Individual, self-paced training
Instructor-led team training
open virtual worlds
A division of Applied Research Associates (ARA), Virtual Heroes designs, develops, and deploys high-fidelity simulations that blend the best of training development, advanced modeling, and serious gaming technology to create fully immersive experiences.
At Virtual Heroes, we help you take preparation to an entirely new level through:
Our clients often come to Virtual Heroes with a specific need — they need a sophisticated terrain modeled, a complicated process simulated, or a multipart, multiplatform training initiative produced. Once we begin working together, they quickly realize everything they can capitalize on:
We don’t take the client trust we’ve earned lightly. And the stats bear it out.
Number of advanced simulation and training projects deployed
Number of awards won for excellence in Serious Games
ARA employees across North America in 30 locations
ARA workforce with advanced engineer and scientist degrees
Since no two real-life scenarios are ever precisely the same, no two training simulations should be, either. That’s why at Virtual Heroes, we engineer and deliver highly customized training programs for every client. We’re also part of a global learning community, recognizing that widely sharing know-how and resources can help accelerate learning. Through our Go Platform, an immersive, browser-based virtual world platform based on the Unreal® Engine, we’ve made free releases like these available to trainees everywhere:
A 3D interactive program that enables healthcare workers to practice techniques for quickly sedating and intubating critically ill patients.
An immersive game that simulates real-world medical lab conditions, including conducting DNA extraction and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, just like the same research performed to identify the COVID-19 virus.
A program that puts trainees on the front lines of a mass casualty event triggered by an earthquake or biological, chemical or explosive attack.
