1 Welcome to my Website & Portfolio
Firstly, let me take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to my website and Portfolio. My name is William Harvey and I’m Freelance Training Designer. My specialty is producing interactive training applications. If you have a project which requires Instructional Design, Development or Multi-Media asset creation then please contact me to discuss the opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

3 Virtual Reality and 3D Asset Production
Employee training utilizing virtual reality is the most cost-effective way to train your personnel. By using immersive technologies such as VR your employees will significantly enhance their learning and retention rates. I build 360-degree sensory experiences, which are not only immersive and interactive but include all the differing sights and sounds of a simulated environment. My interactive training scenarios will enhance the safety aspects of your sector by reducing injuries and minimizing litigation cost.
Virtual reality training is superior to basic e-learning programs in that it is particularly useful for simulating dangerous settings, where your employees have to react in an appropriate and safe manner.

4 Expertise in Training & Development
- Vega, Commercial Aviation Division (previously TRO Learning)
- Thales Training and Simulation
- Saudi Arabian Airlines
- The Moment Company for The Royal Navy
A combination of 2D and 3D media production skills, coupled with an immersive and interactive student centred training experiences is a powerful combination. One in which your company will hugely benefit.

During my time at Saudi Arabian Airlines I was employed as a Flight Crew Ground and Fixed Based Simulator Instructor at the Prince Sultan Aviation Academy in Jeddah. I have taught Captains and First Officers aircraft systems and flight procedures and then progressed them onto the MD-90 and Boeing 747-400 Fixed Based Simulators. Throughout that period, I became fascinated with Electronic Learning and its application to flight training. As a result, I developed an expertise in designing and developing training applications.
My specific expertise is in the field of digital training and 3D/2D media production, where my knowledge and expertise in that area were invaluable during my Flight Crew Training career. I was also a Subject Matter Expert and Project Manager for the delivery of the airlines B747-400 and MD-90 Computer Based Training (CBT) program. I hold an FAA Commercial Pilots Licence with Instrument and Multi-Engine Ratings and was trained as a Flight Crew Fixed Based Simulator Instructor at Boeing Flight Safety in Long Beach, California on the MD-90, and at the Prince Sultan Aviation Academy for the B747-400.
I have significant aviation classroom and airline simulator training experience and have believed for some considerable time that Virtual Reality is the next evolution in the province of digital training.
