The opening of a new £22.3 million BMW Training Academy near Munich, Germany, sees the use of the world’s first Virtual Reality theatre used to train BMW technicians.

The facility at Unterschleissheim dramatically increases the number of technicians who can learn how to tend to the needs of every BMW. Instead of employees working one at a time, teams of technicians can now slip on hi-tech goggles and gloves to work on a virtual image of a car or car part that’s projected onto the inside of the goggles. This technology means workshop employees can regularly be kept abreast of the latest technology on BMW cars enabling them to deliver the best service standards to BMW owners.
