Course Details

Through completion of drilling engineering training online, employees become adept in every kind of know-how required for delivery of matchless performance in their jobs at oil majors or with drilling contractors. One of the chief aims of the course is to inculcate the ability of constructing wells effectively and efficiently. Moreover, participants of drilling engineering online course are able to perform the key tasks associated with the area, such as design of wells, operations involved in drilling, and management of processes for effective results. The delivery of this course is conducted by experts of this field who have long experience through practical real-time scenarios with reputed companies. The training is provided to learners with an interactive approach for encouragement of curiosity and interest, and includes pragmatic illustrations for preparation of the students to deal with practical tasks and issues in their jobs. Although there is no essential prerequisite for this course, some experience in an oil field will be beneficial to the trainees during the learning process. The candidates should be able to operate a simple hand-held calculator for basic calculations performed in the class.
