Wait & Weight Method Simulator (Surface)

In this simulation, our virtual instructor guides a student through killing a surface stack well using the Wait & Weight Method. All procedures are scored automatically per IADC grading standards for the Supervisor Level Surface Stack course. 

Each of our drilling simulators 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
