Nowadays, inspection training is still in a conventional way, and the inspector should provide their time and effort to go on-site to conduct an inspection and take a risk or by face to face learning. Considering the not efficient and what is at stake, it is crucial to seek a reliable inspector. Creating competencies and skill for the professional inspector is need many experiences and training. For Conducting inspector training, an environmental simulation based on the conditions of what needs to be inspected is required. Expensive to make environmental simulations and reasons for limited space and time spent on conducting inspection training for surveyors. Virtual reality technology can be a solution to this problem because virtual reality does not become risky and do not takes many costs invested. This research will start with problem identification, data collecting, analysis phase, creating a virtual object, and Trial Phase. The deliverable of this research would be a remotely controllable virtual reality application based android operation system which is the model and design based on the container ship. The application was design with two main modes, which is Ship Tour Mode that can bring the user to explore the ship environment and see the explanation of fire fighting appliances and Inspection Mode that bring the user to finish a 15 minutes mission to find all the fire fighting appliances in the entire ship and fulfill the inspection checklist. Virtual Reality is beneficial for any sector because it can increase competencies, experience, easy access and easy to use. Based on the objective of this application, it can be concluded that the application can develop and simulate fire safety appliances inspection by making a model of the real condition of the fire safety appliances into 3D modelling and install into a virtual reality application maker. And based on the user questionnaire result, this application in the excellent category because the total value is 364 which is between 360 and 450 (maximum), which is the excellent category.
