By gaining an understanding of key threat indicators, faculty and staff will be able to identify concerning behavior before disaster strikes.


Valor is the world's first interactive training experience designed to improve faculty's ability to recognize and prevent threats before they surface and respond effectively to violent incidents such as school shootings.

Saving Lives Through Immersive Learning 

What is Valor?

Powered by Nivra, Valor is a thread of evidenced based curricula designed to equip school faculty with the expertise to make their school the safest learning environment possible.

Our first curriculum addresses the current national crisis of school safety and security.  While school shootings have increased every decade since 1970, schools can prevent these tragic incidents by learning proper identification, prevention, preparation and response.

There are proven benefits to learning such important and sensitive topics in Virtual Reality, including advanced conditioning, enhanced retention and learning in a safer environment.

Through immersive technology, students can learn more quickly by being an active participant in the learning experience. They learn by 'doing' and interacting in a way that simulates real life experiences, leading to long-term knowledge, retention and preparation. 


A safe learning environment is a perquisite to student achievement and learning outcome. This is achieved when adopting evidentiary best practices as part of a comprehensive security plan. 


The VR delivery platform allows for continual on-demand learning. Accommodating the busy and ever changing faculty schedules, training frequency results in higher performance. Practice makes permanent. 


School districts have access to unlimited training hours throughout the academic year with the ability to curate a library of critical course content stored on a headset which can be shared among the staff. 

Cost Effective

Nivra seamlessly installs portable secured VR headsets in your school so faculty can access the interactive content on-demand at their convenience. 


The headsets include interactive courses and simulations that comprehensively educate the user on a variety of vital subjects, including: 

1. Active Shooter Prevention & Response

2. Emergency First Aid 

3. Fire Safety

4. Substance Abuse Prevention Coming Soon

5. Anti-Bullying & Acceptance Coming Soon

6. Mental Health Coming Soon

7. Situational Awareness Coming Soon

8. Grieving and Bereavement Coming Soon

A National Crisis

Since 1970 the number of school shootings has increased every decade. Post pandemic incidents are at historic highs. Reported suicides and mental health cases have also experienced a significant increase. 


While valiant efforts have been made to reverse this disturbing trend, they have failed. Part of the failure is the result of ineffective and inconsistent training. Valor directly addresses this deficiency through both its prevention-based curriculum and immersive learning delivery model. 

VR Technology

Interactive immersive VR courses increase the amount of quality training teachers can access. This leads to more knowledgeable and better prepared staff. 


Confident teachers are better equipped to make the right split-second decisions during a crisis. 


Active learning has been proven to increase retention up to 90% verses the 5% achieved via lecture and 20% through audio visual. 

VR Training

Virtual reality is a powerful training platform. It provides the opportunity to engage in practical training in an environment where trainees can learn skills faster, retain more knowledge and increase productivity without distractions or risk factors associated with real-life environments.

Replicating dangerous environments makes VR training an attractive and practical choice as it provides a non-traumatic learning environment. VR has been used to simulate potentially fatal scenarios without compromising safety.

Immersive learning eliminates all outside distractions and static. Learners are immersed in a virtual world.

Removes Distractions

Experts suggest immersive learning because it promotes focused immersion.

Total Focus

Learners are deeply involved in the learning process resulting in an emotional connection.

Emotional Connectivity

Learners are encouraged to participate in the simulated environment and share their experiences.

Increased Motivation

This learner-centric model allows learners to learn at their own pace.

Personalized Learning

Knowledge retention climbs as high as 90% through immersive learning.

Greater Learning Retention

Benefits Of Immersive Learning 

Immersive learning enhances learning in an unprecedented manner. It will revolutionize the world of professional development training and education. Take a look at the numerous benefits.
