SUPERVISOR TRAINING COURSE

DRILLING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

This series of courses is aimed at assisting drilling supervisors in the management of drilling accessories and drillrigs.

Training is conducted in the form of lectures, with the extensive use of visual aids, followed up by on-site practical observation and training.  We can modify our format to meet virtually any client requirements.

Many clients have found an improvement in drillbit performance and a reduction in drilling costs, after conducting these courses at their mines.
