Abstract: Virtual Reality (VR) devices are now more affordable and accessible for researchers to explore its advances for development of educative, learning and training applications.The aim of this project is to develop suitable first aid medical training programs utilizing low-cost VR headsets like Google Cardboard, Samsung VR and Oculus Go, which offers no spatial movement and hand interactivity. In this paper, we have proposed two novel training programs. The first prototype, we conduct the training through an interactive questionnaire and the second prototype is a picture-based point and click narrative experience (PBPCNE). The training applications, made using Unreal Engine 4 and Maya 3ds Max is executed directly on the Oculus Go headset, tests the user’s knowledge on road safety, first aid knowledge, important emergency helpline numbers, Basic Life Support (BLS) guidelines and on the approach to handle victims in emergency situations.Our motive for these simulations is to create cost-effective tools for transferring skills and knowledge to the user by reducing the time and money invested in traditional training.
