HDD technology is a minimal impact trenchless method that was introduced for installing infrastructure pipeline in a radius along a prescribed underground path. This method can meet the requirement of minimal surface disturbance on traffic with low restoration cost, and compliance with laws and regulations as compared to conventional trenching. Through this program, apprentices will learn the installation of the HDD process from survey up to drilling included pipe analysis and HDD project documentation.
For technical skills, VR Simulator is introducing to ensure that all the apprentices able to perform both Machine Operation and Pilot Bore practices in a simulated working environment. After program completion, apprentices will be able to achieve the competency requirement from the trenchless industry in Machine and Pilot Bore Operation, drilling fluid mixing and HDD Pre-Bore Profiling.
