5-Day Extended Reach Engineering Design and Implementation Course

Why not hone your ERD and Horizontal Drilling skills by attending this state-of-the art Tablet-based training?

K&M Technology Group have reinvented the training process to combine their world-renown Extended Reach and Horizontal Drilling modules, videos and technical animations to now also include the use of Tablets to access a K&M App that allows course attendees to experiment with various scenarios to see how making changes to one aspect of a well often has far reaching ramifications to many others. The ability to use the App to better understand the concepts being taught has transformed the learning experience.

The course fee covers the Tablet, which is pre-loaded with a demo version of the software, training material, and case studies so the attendees not only learn during the training course, but they can also revisit the App at a later date to refresh their memories or share with colleagues what they have learned.
