Online Courses

ISWD receives calls from operators around the country needing a wide variety of training and consulting services. The School has provided customized training programs ranging from programs for experienced employees to basic training programs for those new to the industry. Specific consulting projects are also undertaken. Does ISWD do any classroom-based training?

Yes! ISWD offers its entire menu of online CEUs in a classroom-based format. One CEU-weight offerings take 1 hour of class time; two CEU-weight offerings take 2 hours in class.

The benefit of classroom-based training through ISWD is that it can be scheduled on the weekends as well as on weekdays. Licensed well drillers & pump installers who have difficulty accessing CEUs can arrange for ISWD training in a location of their choosing. This arrangement works well for groups of license holders, as there are minimum class size requirements.

For information about arranging onsite CEU classes anywhere in the U.S. contact: director@welldrillingschool.com
