Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Machine Operator

HDD technology is a minimal impact trenchless method introduced for the installation of infrastructure pipeline along a prescribed underground path. This method is more compliant towards the requirement of minimal surface disturbance on traffic and low restoration cost as compared to conventional trenching, which is similarly compliant with laws and regulations. In this program, apprentices will execute the HDD process from surveying up to drilling putting into practice all relevant Safety and Health factors. 

For technical skills, our VR Simulator ensures that all apprentices are able to perform Machine Operation practices with the simulated working environment. Upon completion of this program, apprentices will be competent personnel in Machine Operation for the trenchless industry.
