Wireline Operations


The Wireline course offers detailed insight into what Wireline is and what it is used for. This course has been dynamically structured to promote the easy learning of some of the most complex techniques in oilfield drilling. Students of this course will not be taught to only memorize definitions and terms, but will be shown why certain tools and techniques are used. This allows for a deeper understanding of the material, and better overall course quality. This course will show how Wireline developed along with the tools and technology that are utilized by engineers all around the world. Students are also made aware of proper tool handling techniques to insure the safety of not only themselves, but of all those around them making a more productive and profitable work place. We understand that effectively building confidence in the way students properly and safely handle tools will pay off almost immediately.
