Qualification Details

RII40920 - Certificate IV in Drilling Operations

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

Experienced senior drillers and supervisors who perform tasks involving a broad range of activities most of which are complex and non-routine, are responsible for the quantity and quality of the output of others and contribute to the development of technical solutions to non-routine problems 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.

ADI believes that no learner should be required to undertake a unit of competency for which they are already able to demonstrate satisfactory achievement of the requirements stated in qualification.

  • Six (6) core units, and
