Course Overview


The Certificate IV in Well Servicing Operations is a qualification designed to reflect the roles of a Driller. The Certificate IV has been developed to provide Drillers with the underlying skills and knowledge to work on an operational Well Servicing site. A Driller works under the instruction of a Rig Manager and is the overall supervisor of the Well Servicing crew. They perform tasks involving a broad range of varied activities most of which are complex and non-routine. 

Under current QLD legislation‚ all personnel working on oil and gas drilling sites are required to undertake Drilling Qualifications for the position in which they work. All certificates in Well Servicing through Harness require trainees to hold a position on an operational oil and gas drilling rig. 

Harness has invested heavily in developing high quality assessment tools to provide trainees with the ability to develop the skills and knowledge required to work as a Driller on an operational Well Servicing site. 

RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) can be considered for this qualification.
