Is simulation-based learning in the oil and gas industry a good idea?

We often get asked by our students if our simulation courses alone are enough to face the industry. In this blog, we have addressed some of the big pros of using simulation in training!

1) Safety:

As we all know, the O & G industry is probably one of the sectors which deals with large and complex equipment. If not handled properly, this can be extremely hazardous to the students in training. This is not the case with simulation-based training, as it allows for safe and controlled learning environments.

2) Cost-effective

Training schools/universities invest millions of dollars in physical equipment along with maintenance each time. With simulation-based education, it is a one-time investment and zero maintenance. You get the same and better features at one-fourth of the price! Thus the fee for students to follow the courses will be much lower!

3) Anytime, Anywhere:

Let’s say you want to practice and play around with your equipment, you don’t have to wait to be in person to do that. With simulation based training, you can practice the course virtually anytime, anywhere. All you need to have is a well-performing computer.

4) Research and development:

In addition to training, Simulation can be extremely helpful in research and development. Computer simulations can be used to model and test new technologies and techniques, which can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operations. This can ultimately lead to cost savings for the company and a more sustainable future for the industry.
