Kick Detection Simulation

In this simulation, our virtual instructor guides a student through the drilling and kick detection process. All procedures are scored automatically per IADC grading standards for the Driller Level.

Each of our drilling simulations includes access for 1 student for 1 year to go through the simulation as many times as desired. Purchasing gives you access to both the Offline version on your iPad/iPhone and the Web version on your PC/Laptop
