Oil Well Drilling & Control

The Drilling Technology training program will help you acquire the knowledge and management skills to advance further in your career. This program will prepare you to operate in a safe and efficient manner with respect for personnel, equipment and protection of our environment.

Drilling Technology will be offered in three separate levels done in modules or segments. Successful completion of each level will be corrected and returned. Completion of the final exam will lead to a certificate of completion for the program.

The Diploma in Drilling Technology Program encompasses an in depth knowledge of the drilling industry. The text is intended for industry and college-level petroleum technology students. Therefore, we are presenting the information one more advanced level.

Prerequisites are Engineers, Technicians or oilfield experience Floor man(Roughneck) level or higher with a grade 12 or equivalent.

Individuals interested in this program must register by contacting the administration office.

This Introduction to Drilling Course is suitable for everyone that wants to find out about drilling, particularly those who work closely with Drilling Departments.

The course will give an understanding of drilling to non-drilling professionals; from any other petro-technical discipline or outside the industry completely.
