Course was tailored to the classes' need and not just delivered from a syllabus. This is an excellent way to give people what they need to develop a basic understanding of the drilling industry. Reinforced my basics very well and identified my weak areas where I need improvement.

The instructor made learning the different sections of the drilling site to be very interesting. It was very important to understand the importance of each and how they effect drilling.

The instructor has so many years of drilling experience, yet also stays very up-to-date. He is great about answering questions and providing great visual tools for learning.
