Here, we propose a new virtual reality-based job training program for human resource development. In our proposed system, the educational content is displayed in the immersive virtual environment with haptic information, very similar to the way a trainee may experience work in the virtual site operation. The brain functional activities of the trainee under virtual and real skills training are measured using near-infrared spectroscopy, and the characteristics of the activity patterns are analyzed in detail.
