Abstract: Professional persons and skilled workers need to continuously ensure they maintain their knowledge and skills up-to-date, as well as strive to be on top of their game within a tough and competitive working environment. Career professional development courses and programmes are specifically planned, designed and developed to address such need assisting professional workers and companies in their training and educational needs. Innovative training technologies are frequently employed in enabling and facilitating the learning process especially in specific circumstances where the learners are workers from within a domain that requires detailed or tailored content. In this paper, we make the case for the pedagogic role of Virtual Reality techniques as part of the Career Professional Development of professional workers in general. We discuss issues surrounding the design of VR training material, while employing use case scenarios from real situations when such a technique is employed advantageously and fruitfully. The paper closes with our recommendations, the foreseeable future of this particular application of virtual reality, while presenting our conclusions.
