Vestibule Training

Meaning of Vestibule

A body cavity, chamber, or channel that leads to or is an entrance

to another body cavity

Vestibule in training context is used to denote that the training

program is like an entry or passageway, the employee must cross
before getting to the job itself.

Vestibule training is an old method of training that originated in

the 1800s.

The method attempt to duplicate on-the-job-situation in a

company classroom.


It is often imported with the help of the equipment and machines,

which are identical with those in use in the place of work.

This technique enables the trainees to concentrate on learning

new skills.

It is efficient to train semi-skilled personnel, particularly when

many employees have to be trained for the same kind of work at
the same time.

Theory can be related to practice here.

Duration ranges from few days to a few weeks.

Often used to train bank tellers, inspectors, machine operators,

typists etc.

Need of Vestibule Training

New or advanced equipment or tools is introduced in to the organization to do

a particular job by using them.

Large number of employees are to be trained simultaneously for same job.

Hands on experience.

To impart practical knowledge.

To reduce accidents or failure of operations.


Training becomes more reality-based.

It relieves the employee from the pressure of having to produce while


Directly applies to jobs.

Increases the chances of retention.

Prevents trainees from making costly mistakesor damaging


Allows instructors to give morepersonalized attention to the learners.

Since the training programme is given in a separate room,

distractions are minimized.

The correct method can be taught without interrupting production.


Time Consuming.


Trainer has to be very skilled.

There has to be elaborate setups for the same.

Additional investment in equipment may cause extra financial


The training situation is artificial.


Simulation is the use of equipment that duplicates job conditions

and tasks so trainees can learn skills before attempting them on
the job.

It differs from vestibule training in that simulation attempts to

duplicate the exact conditions that occur on the job.

This kind of training is used to train astronauts, airline pilots, and

others who must learn difficult procedures off the job.

Represents a real-life situation.

Trainees decisions result in outcomes that mirror what would

happen if on the job.

Examples: Air force fighter pilots are getting trained on the jet
fighters simulator.


Simulation is creating computer versions of real-life situations.

It is about imitating or making judgment or opining how events

might occur in a real situation.

Methods of Simulation

Business Games

Case Studies

In-basket technique

Role Plays

Business Games

These are based on the set of rules, procedures, plans,

relationships and principles.

In the Business Games, trainees are given some information that

describes a particular situation and are then asked to make
decisions that will best suit in the favour of the company.

And then the system provides the feedback about the impact of
their decisions.

Again, on the basis of the feedback, they are asked to make the
decisions again.

This process continues until some meaningful results do not

come out.

Case Studies

The trainee is given with some written material, and the some
complex situations of a real or imaginary organization.

The trainee then makes certain judgement about the case by

identifying and giving possible solutions to the problem.

In-Basket Techniques

Also known as In-tray method

The trainee is presented with a pack of papers and files in a tray

containing administrative problems and is asked to take decisions
on these within a stipulated time.

The decisions taken by the trainees are compared with one


The trainees are provided feedback on their performance.

Role Play

Role play is a simulation in which each participant is given a role

to play.

Information is given to trainees related to:

description of the role



responsibilities etc.

Some real life situations are presented before them and they are
asked to act out the way in which the circumstances might reach
an appropriate conclusion through the play.


A company named XYZ Pvt. Ltd., deals with manufacturing of

computer hardware.

The company recently got a new project for which they have
bought new machineries.

There are two types of machines required for manufacturing


For this project they have classified their workers on the basis of
their technical knowledge.

The manufacturing process is designed in two stages.

Stage 1: Raw material processing.

Stage 2: Automation process.
