Course Attended: Civil and Mining

I knew a little about drilling, but didn’t really know the extent of opportunities available in the industry. That was a nice surprise; there’s so much variety and so much potential. People always need water, energy, roads, infrastructure and that’s where the drilling company comes in.

The Certificate in Drilling is very good, very practical. There’s often a disconnect between education and the real world, but not with the drilling programme. It’s a great introduction to the industry, teaching the skills needed to work safely and effectively in a drilling team. I’m mentally and physically prepared and ready to go.
