It is a series of online training courses that can aid new hires, industry professionals, and college students with cutting-edge training modules. The entire program can serve as an excellent orientation for entry level workers and prepare them for more on-the-job training and certification or licensing exams, as well as lead to university degrees. Drilling Basics Online consists of five eight-hour sessions, the first of which recently debuted.
