Professional development keeps drillers sharp at their craft, but good company training goes beyond strictly drilling topics. This week, host Brock Yordy takes a question about going beyond basics like safety (which are, of course, an important baseline). It’s Ask Brock episode 140.

“There’s all sorts of things within our industry that we need to discuss, from soil identification to effective fluids management, to communication on the jobsite with the customer, with our people, with the regulators, leadership. There’s a lot of places we can go.”

He also talks about leadership training for drillers, after-action reviews and other topics. Click the video to hear more.
