IGSHPA announces its Accredited Driller Workshops —Applications of Production Drilling and Borehole Construction for GeoExchange Systems course. This workshop will train individuals on proper construction and completion methods for vertical GeoExchange boreholes. Currently, drilling contractors searching for industry training on GeoExchange heat pumps must attend a full Accredited Installer workshop. Because certain topics covered within the Accredited Installer course do not pertain to drilling contractors, IGSHPA has formed this training course to provide drilling contractors with information that’s unique to them on a GeoExchange job site.
Current Drilling Contractors, Drilling Company Owners, Drilling Company Project Managers, Drilling Company Administrators
