Horizontal Directional Drilling Fundamentals - Design to Construction (May 27-30, 2019 | Four Day Field School)


The course combines classroom study with field practice. Lectures will provide details on surface and subsurface investigations, drilling fluids, project planning, design, construction and QA/QC, while the field training component will include subsurface investigations, drill fluid testing and borepath drilling using state-of-the-art HDD equipment.

During the 4-day course, participants will learn how to take into account the surface and subsurface information for project planning, design, drill fluids and tool selection, as well as how to operate the HDD equipment and monitor critical parameters (alignment, fluid pressures, pull loads) during borepath drilling operation.

This joint course by the CATT and Fleming College combines both organizations’ expertise, encompassing HDD design along with construction, and takes advantage of Fleming’s unique training program in drilling.
