Bit Space Development Ltd. in partnership with Manitoba Construction Sector Council developed a series of eLearning modules of the Framer Course, using 360 photos and videos technology. This has created an immersive learning content that entitled trainees to access the job site beforehand without leaving the training room, unlike the other conventional training methods like paper-based or online training with audio.

Multiple Learning Modules

The framers course will teach technical skills (knowledge of tools, equipment and processes) and will embed safety training and Essential Skills throughout the program (reading, measurement, document use, communication, physical dexterity, working from heights, working with others).
