HDD School September



Horizontal Directional Drilling – School September 2013

Vermeer UK in conjunction with Vermeer Manufacturing, Baroid and Digital Control are planning an in-depth Directional Drilling Course.

These will be theoretical sessions designed to update your operator’s knowledge of drilling procedure and the products involved.

Training sessions will cover the following subjects:

  1. Location Equipment Digital Control
  2. Drilling Fluids – Baroid (full day course)
  3. Rock Drilling, Processes and Tools
  4. Vermeer Machines and Tooling


The Course will also include discussions on operating techniques, Vermeer products, care of rods, operating parameters of rods and causes of rod breakages.

We believe that it is beneficial to our customers to send a minimum of two persons on this course. The course is free of charge and will help explain how with a little care your operating problems can be eliminated. 

All Course notes/literature and a certificate of attendance will be provided on conclusion of the drill School.

The course will be held at The Wolds End hotel in Ecton near Wellingborough. Refreshments will be provided on each day and a evening meal at the end of the first day; accommodation  can be arranged but will be charged to your account prior to booking will be essential as places are limited.

The course is provisionally scheduled for the 1st and 2nd week in September, with the final confirmation subject to participant’s preference. We would therefore be grateful if you could confirm your preferred week along with names of personnel who will be participating, and whether accommodation will be required, by the end of May 2013.


Yours sincerely,


Chris Marriott
