The Home Study Courses are published jointly by IADC and PETEX.
While most rig operations are routine, some are not, and nonroutine operations can be vitally important. Thus, Unit III has three lessons that cover procedures and calculations necessary for directional drilling, fishing, and well control.
The three manuals are:
- Lesson 1: Controlled Directional Drilling, 4th Ed.
- Lesson2: Open-Hole Fishing, 4th Ed.
- Lesson 3: Blowout Prevention, 4th Ed.
