Moving up in any industry means leading the folks behind you. Once you finally run a rig and get your own drill helper, what should that training look like? Host and drill trainer Brock Yordy this week discusses tactics for training that can help trainees progress while maintaining safety and production. It’s Ask Brock episode 129.

“We need to treat them the way we’d want to be treated and set them up for success,” Yordy says. “The next thing that I think about is, what have I learned as a driller that has made me successful? Teach them that.”

He also discusses going over teaching solutions to common drilling problems, the nuances of running a drill rig and other topics. Click the video to hear more.
