Australasian Drilling Institute is delivering a Nationally Recognised training program to enable you to gain formal qualifications through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Experienced drillers assistants who perform tasks involving known routines, procedures and who take some responsibility for the quality of work outcome are to apply for RPL for this qualification.
 
The RPL process recognises your existing experience gained through life or work for which you may not have obtained a formal qualification. We will work with you to identify your existing skills and assess if you can then achieve a full or partial qualification. This also helps to avoid unnecessary duplication of training, saving you time and money.
