This paper presents an experiment with real users in a realistic three-dimensional simulation tool manufacture and installation of computer networks. The study highlights the use of virtual simulators for vocational education applied technology courses, with the main focus on the upper reaches of Technology Analysis and Systems Development. The tests were performed microarray in vitro to determine the usability and functionality of the system, and behavioral tests to determine which system use ratio and the effectiveness of learning. The results showed that the use of simulators is relevant to the determination of the content and can reduce deployment costs and maintenance of a physical laboratory without prejudice to the teaching practice. An evaluation was carried out with students in class paired (with and without simulation). It follows that is propaedeutic use a simulation tool for the professional education of a higher level, virtual laboratories can provide a balanced sense of knowledge and low operating cost practice in addition to increasing the motivation of students
