Drilling Courses. // Helping you reach your potential.

Overview.

With a number of highly experienced drillers amongst Equipe Training's team, we are able to offer bespoke land drilling rig training for any rig currently in the UK market. Whether you require training for a Cable Percussion, Rotary, Dynamic Sampling, Sonic or Window Sampling Rig, we are happy to provide our services.

Naturally we can not offer to train you to 'become a driller', a skill that requires years of experience and know-how, but we can provide training on how to safely operate all drilling operatus.

From using the equipment safely and securely following health and safety guidelines to maintaining you rig, we can ensure that you are thoroughly versed in operating drilling plant, as well as the techniquies used in different forms of drilling.

Training packages are bespoke and tailored to your needs. If you are just starting out in the drilling world, or you are a seasoned driller looking to sharpen up on certain aspects of on-site work, we can offer services to help you.
