This chapter provides examples of training applications used in the manufacturing and civil security industries. The type of medium used during a phase of training can have a major impact on efficacy. Research conducted at the turn of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries showed that a significant difference in the reception of messages exists. The richer the medium, the more vivid the imagery of the presented space and situation, the greater the engagement of attention, and thus the greater the likelihood that the illusion of presence (spatial and social) will occur. The Spatial Presence Model assumes that the presence phenomenon is a specific state of an individual’s cognitive system. Formation of the illusion of presence intensifies the so-called virtual experience of objects.
