A Primer of Oilwell Drilling Certificate Program
A Primer of Oilwell Drilling remains the go-to guide for rig personnel wishing to gain a better understanding of drilling operations and the oil and gas industry as a whole. Now readers can test their knowledge using an assessment tool aimed at reinforcing material from the book.
The Certificate Program is a self-study course designed to teach key terms and concepts that are essential to the oil and gas industry. Topics include cable-tool and rotary drilling, rig types and components, land and offshore drilling operations, well completion, and rig safety.
When you purchase this program, you receive A Primer of Oilwell Drilling (in print or e-book) and an online assessment. The open-book assessment is made up of 200 questions and takes approximately 4 hours to complete after reading the book. If a passing score of 70% is not achieved, a retake assessment that includes 200 new questions is made available at no additional cost. Successful completion earns a Completion Certificate from The University of Texas at Austin–PETEX and 3.0 CEUs.
