Borehole Drilling Machine Operator Training

This course gives delegates a truly hands-on experience of borehole drilling. Two drilling techniques will be used:

  • rotary drilling, and
  • percussion.

Although experienced staff will be in charge of the rigs you will be expected to actively participate.

The course covers the entire process, including designing the borehole, drilling, logging, inserting the casing and gravel pack, installing the sanitary seal, developing the borehole and test pumping. Special attention is given to how to supervise a borehole and the common pitfalls. In addition, time will be dedicated to ground surveying and ferro-cement construction.
