DS-1 Fourth Edition School – This three-day course fundamentally changes attendees’ approach to failure prevention utilizing the four volumes of the current DS-1 Standard. By the end of the course the attendees will have accumulated a detailed understanding of manufacturing, design and inspection of drill pipe and specialty tools.
DS-1 Distance Learning – For decades the DS-1® Fourth Edition course has been one of the foremost classes in drillstring design and failure prevention. We’ve always combined solid engineering experience, an industry-wide knowledge base, and engaging instruction to provide a great training experience. Here at Bureau Veritas, we’ve committed ourselves to providing the industry with a distance-learning option for training people to prevent failures - introducing, the DS-1 Distance Learning program!
Casing Failure Prevention – The best casing design can be subject to failure unless it is correctly specified, adequately inspected and handled properly. We have created a casing failure prevention system that will provide you with the tools you need to assure success before you set your casing. In this two-day course we will take you beyond design considerations and provide you with the knowledge to dramatically reduce the risk of casing failures and consequential financial impact.
DS-1 Volumes 3 & 4: Inspector and Vendor Personnel Certification – The DS-1 Standard is designed to ensure the quality of inspection and qualification work when it is followed correctly. This two-day course, based on Volumes 3 & 4 of the standard, covers detailed examination of what is in the standard and is designed to familiarize inspectors and shop technicians with its importance. Attendees will learn the procedures they contain and the reasons why they are important in preventing structural failure of drill string components.
Rig Crew Failure Prevention – We have expanded our training spectrum to provide on-site schools for rig crews which is directed toward creating a high level of understanding of failure prevention techniques applicable in a drilling environment. The four-hour course covers the basic causes of failures in operational conditions and teaches the crew key indicators, the consequences of certain actions, and the best rig practices for minimizing the risk of failure.
