The Certificate Program is a self-study program designed to teach key terms and concepts that are relevant to rig personnel and drilling crews. Topics include well patterns, directional surveys, downhole complications, open-hole fishing, well kicks, and blowout prevention techniques.

When you purchase this program, you receive Special Drilling Operations, 2nd ed. (in print or e-book) and an online assessment that can be taken as an open-book test at your own pace. The assessment is made up of 250 questions and takes approximately 6 hours to complete after reading the book. If a passing score of 70% is not achieved, you may retake the assessment at no additional cost. Successful completion earns a Completion Certificate from The University of Texas at Austin–PETEX and 3.0 CEUs.
