The demographics of the refining and petrochemical industries have shown an aging workforce of baby boomers nearing retirement, replaced by a younger generation of workers who have been schooled and learn differently. To address this challenge of building competency in the young workforce, American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) and their members have created the Immersive Learning Subcommittee. The committee consists of a diverse set of safety, information technology, and training professionals.

This presentation will show how the committee is meeting the competency training challenge by developing a library of tools and 3D assets for industry use, and how this library will assist member companies with their own development of training tools to be shared further with industry. The pilot project, virtual reality startup of a fired heater, will be discussed as well as, leading metrics that are being developed to help industry understand the effectiveness of the tools.
