23rd October 2015
  • Uncategorised


DSL are pleased to announce that our training academy has gained API-U approval of four training courses, available worldwide.

The API-U learning approved courses include the following; Drilling Structure Inspector, Derrick Technician, API 4G Category I & II Structure Inspection and Dropped Object Awareness and Prevention. The Drilling Structures Inspector and Derrick Technicians training courses were formerly provided under the former API TPCP structure which has now been replaced with API-U Learning.

These training courses reinforce DSL’s commitment to enhancing the integrity and quality in the industry for the inspection of drilling derricks, and masts and substructures in accordance with API 4G. As well as providing the industry with drilling structures inspectors with the only Industry recognised approval, the new API Category I & II Drilling Structures Inspection course provides drill crews with the core competency to carry out their own inspections. In turn this will help to reduce the amount of defects recorded when Cat III or Cat IV inspections are carried out, thus saving time and costs.

All of the above courses can be held in class room environments worldwide as well as some accessible online through DSL’s e-learning platform, therefore the courses are easily accessible 24/7, globally and without the need to travel.

Mike Smith, Managing Director states ‘The API-U approval is a great accolade to the experience and expertise DSL has, in order deliver courses to a high and industry recognised standard. The courses represent our knowledge in the industry, through inspections to awareness of dropped objects. It is our responsibility to educate and improve safety for all’.
