Company Description

Interplay Learning provides online and virtual reality training for essential skilled trades. This includes simulations for HVAC, plumbing, electrical, solar, and facilities maintenance--all skills that remain in high demand during the pandemic and related economic downturn. The company’s immersive learning platform enables students to ply their trade in weeks, not years—and it has facilitated the continuous, necessary upskilling of thousands of tradespeople throughout the pandemic for companies including Ruud, Carrier, Hunt Military Communities, and Rheem, which plans to train 250,000 workers by 2025 on the platform. In October, the company announced a partnership with Home Builders Institute, a nonprofit that provides job placement for the building industry, to help thousands of at-risk youths, veterans, and displaced workers receive hands-on training.
