Manufacturers' input sought for IADC training catalog

Posted on 06 January 2009

“Training availability is a key concern of many end users of automated and mechanized rig equipment, and our committee committed to answer this need by developing a comprehensive list of training courses available through equipment manufacturers,” explained Mike Killalea, IADC group vice president/publisher. “Our goal is to produce a balanced, unbiased catalog that operators and contractors can use as a handy reference to training availability.

“Consequently, we strongly encourage all equipment manufacturers to help us obtain accurate information.”

The catalog will contain course offerings, he added. It will include details such as course schedules.

Bill Schaer of National Oilwell Varco will collect the information for this project, under the leadership of subcommittee vice chairman Logan Puckett, Pride International.

For more information or to participate, contact Mr Schaer or Mr Killalea.
