Pro-Visual Publishing proudly announces the winner of the Pro-Vis AR competition, Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT), College of Health, Community and Science.

Using technological advancements to educate students in safe work practices, CIT proves that they are at the forefront of safety. CIT stood out from the many entries received due to their commitment to workplace health and safety and their use of the Augmented Reality (AR) capable guide, National Guide for Aged Care 2016, alongside their training program.

On the 31st of August, Pro-Visual Publishing's CEO John Hutchings and Marketing Manager, Deanna Davenport, had the privilege of awarding CIT as the winner by presenting them with a trophy and the $5,000 prize.

“It was a great honour presenting CIT with this award. After touring the facilities, it is evident that great pride is taken in the way students are educated. It also shows that CIT is very much up to date with using new technologies to ensure safety and awareness of key issues”

- John Hutchings, Pro-Visual Publishing CEO

The event was held at CIT, in which they had the opportunity to showcase their state-of-the-art-facilities used for training purposes. Their facilities included life-size manikins, which are used by students who are training in direct care work.

“They provide students with the opportunity to conduct assistance with daily activities such as bed bathing, showering, continence care, dressing and undressing and utilised for practice in lifting and transfer”

- Barbara Lawson, Aged Care Program Coordinator

The life-size manikins create a safe and stress-free environment for students to refine their skills and techniques in order to become safe and successful care workers. Students are required to treat a manikin the same way they would treat a client they are caring for, with respect and consideration.
