This article presents a training system for a hydroelectric unit of energy (UHE) by using virtual reality desktop techniques. The system has two training modules: the first one, assembly module, allows the trainer to virtually execute the real assembly sequences of the concrete and the UHE equipments. The second one, maintenance module, which uses the learning approach based on practice, offers different levels of training, divided in three modes: automatic, guided and exploratory. These modes are accessed according to the trainer's acquired degree of knowledge compared to the maintenance procedures. The results of the system implantation show the potentiality of using virtual reality desktop in huge industrial projects training.
