The 10 day program will include professional training using the following curriculum:
- A Primer of Oil Well Drilling
- Drill Floor Operations
- IADC WellCAP® Introductory Well Control Accreditation for Drilling, Workover and Completions
- HSE RIG PASS® Accreditation
A Primer of Oil Well Drilling:
This training sequence clearly explains drilling in non-technical terms. Drilling rigs consist of many different parts and components, and rig personnel perform a wide variety of tasks. Component parts and crew functions are explained in simple terms; with graphic support, and demonstrated, where practical. The role each part/function plays in the overall process is emphasized, along with potential hazards and preliminary safety orientation.

Cable-Tool Versus Rotary Drilling
Companies and People
The Nature of Oil and Gas Reservoirs
The Drill Site: Moving In Equipment
Normal Drilling Operations
Special Operations & The Future
Drill Floor Operations :
Students are provided with multimedia (video, slides, and PowerPoint) training in: safe and effective methods of making a connection; tripping pipe in and out of the hole; care and use of tongs; slips and laying down pipe. At the end of this sequence, students will be able to identify safe and unsafe drilling-floor practices. General safety, safety programming and safe operation & handling of equipment will be incorporated, and, where practical, demonstrated, throughout this series.

IADC WellCAP® Introductory Well Control Accreditation for Drilling, Workover and Completions:
This training conforms to the industry-standard WellCAP® training criteria, developed by the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC). This program certifies that the training features proper orientation to introductory drilling, work-over, and completions, emphasizing the knowledge and practical skills critical to successful well control. Using quality benchmarks developed in consultation with operators, drilling contractors, professional trainers and well control specialists, around the world, WellCAP® certification provides assurance that well control training schools adhere to a core curriculum, accepted throughout the industry. Accreditation is achieved only after an extensive review of a provider's curriculum, testing practices, faculty, facilities, and administrative procedures.
HSE RIG PASS® Accreditation:
Developed by the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), this industry-standard safety orientation program prepares employees for safe activities on and around drilling rigs (onshore or offshore). RIG PASS® has been awarded to oil & gas companies worldwide from Europe to Australia, Canada and the United States. Maritime Drilling Schools Limited is the first institution in Canada to be awarded the RIG PASS® accreditation. The program was developed and is administered by the International Association of Drilling Contractors, a worldwide organization comprising of contractors, producers and service companies in the energy industry. A RIG PASS® card shows the bearer has completed RIG PASS® instruction, with offshore endorsement, as defined by the drilling industry’s leading safety and training professionals. Students will complete this program followed by a written exam. The curriculum includes 12 basic modules, applicable to a wide variety of drilling operations.
