|Drill String Failure Prevention 1 is focused on rig site personnel from entry level through derrickman and also procurement personnel. The intent is to create awareness of how various tools are manufactured and used, how performance limits are established, and how various components are likely to fail. Drill String Failure Prevention 2 builds on these concepts for Drillers through Rig Manager and other Drilling Supervision. The intent is to equip them to make tool selection and string design decisions for typical situations. A calculator is required for both courses.|
