Delivering Online Continuing Education (CE) to the Water Well Industry

Since 2005 the ISWD's focus has shifted to offering training to those already in the water well drilling industry. Continuing education as a requirement for license renewal is required in 27 states. The remaining states are likely to join the majority over time. ISWD is proud to offer continuing education credits for the well drilling industry online.

The International School of Well Drilling was established in May 2002 to serve the needs of the water well, environmental, & geotechnical sectors of the drilling industry. During 2003-2004 the School's 4-week training program offered solid training in the basic skills needed by all those choosing to train for a career in the drilling industry.

Since opening, ISWD has trained hundreds of students nationally and internationally. These students have included those seeking to enter the drilling industry, those currently employed at a junior level in the industry, as well as industry regulators and licensed well drillers seeking to further their knowledge.

Our students have taken training programs ranging from 4-week industry entry preparation programs, 1-week professional development programs, and 1-2 day continuing education seminars.
