With the support of the Future Skills Centre and our industry partner, Siemens Canada, BCIT has recently developed a Virtualized Experiential Learning Platform (VELP) at the Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity Lab (CICL) to offer virtualized experiential learning. Using advanced virtualization tools and technologies, integrated with real-field devices and systems, trainees are now able to get vocational training remotely. VELP will be of substantial value to Canadian academic institutions, utilities, industries, and remote communities who would like to get remote hands-on experience on recent advanced critical energy infrastructure and cybersecurity technologies and solutions.
