  • Confirmation of Competency and Currency
  • Stuck Pipe
  • Both Coal Bed Methane and Under Balanced Air Drilling

 Classroom Courses held are competency based and will confirm currency of competency.

The writer and trainer/assessor of the courses can stand by the quality of the courses and confirm competency for our informal courses where he is not prepared to do this for other informal industry courses.
