The Virtual Training Tools Project, a collaborative project between the City of Phoenix and the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department of Northern Arizona University, has produced a customized multimedia-based educational training tool for the 23rd Avenue Wastewater Treatment
Plant. The training tool application, developed to provide new or transferred operators with orientation training, conveys complex wastewater treatment process concepts in a simple and understandable format using audio, video, photography, high quality 3D animation, graphics and text. The
operator is presented with a virtual tour of the plant while having access through links to a glossary of terms, a series of operator's tips, more detailed descriptions of the treatment processes, additional plant or equipment images and a set of practice calculation exercises. Development
and production of the training tool was directed so that the content presented is highly specific to the 23rd Avenue plant. Acquiring actual data on process design, process performance and process operations early in the development phase was essential for creating what is considered a uniquely
specialized multimedia application. This paper presents and discusses the overall approach used in developing the training tool application. In addition, some of the more unique aspects functional and visual elements of the application are also highlighted.
