In this picture, Lars W. Wroldsen of NYD and Felix Gorbatsevich of PaleBlue, along with two diving course students, present the Virtual Reality gear intended for simulator-based training.
PaleBlue and NYD are collaborating on the Dive Control Simulator project for training of diving supervisors. At the same time, we are working on modernizing the training of industrial divers. Building on top of Virtual Reality technologies allows us to narrow the gap between classroom training and practical diving.
NYD is a private school, which has trained more than 2,500 divers since its founding in 1989. It is now one of the world’s leading diving schools and its courses are internationally recognized.
The school is located at Fagerstrand quay at Nesodden south of Oslo. NYD occupies a 200-metre quay with classrooms and diving stations. As many as 10,000 dives are performed at the school every year.
