MWD COACH: WHAT WE DO
We are MWD COACH, a training & support team that teaches Measurement While Drilling Practices & Professionalism for small to mid-size Directional Companies. The training provided ranges from the basic to mid-advanced techniques of MWD operations. All training is based on the GE Tensor type tools and variations of the tensor tools. Our coaches get your operators ready to make you more money with less down time due to failures or mistakes. We provide training, support, and personnel evaluations. MWD COACH training consists of a 3-4 day course and as a companion a retainer package can be added.
- Training Breakdown:
Day 1 starts with a well plan and basic rig understanding. Our coaches will show basic breakdown of the tools & how to make up the tool string. Other aspects: change out centralizers, how to look for wash, when a tool string is worn or washed what to do, inspection of kit box & equipment.
Day 2 is a hard day of Magnetics! The majority of the day is spent on magnetics and surveying. Coaches also will teach how to use surface equipment & programming, how to do proper paperwork, how to troubleshoot surface gear, how to complete end of well paperwork. Coaches will explain basic MWD operations & what to look for if a survey is ‘dirty’& why this happens. Coaches will also cover directional equipment, scribing, orientation, high-side, and the well plan!
After the 3rd day of MWD training the student will be able to hold a night tour. MWD COACH administers a MWD / D&I test. If passed MWDC will certify the student is up to MWDC standards for continued field training!
(Additional learning can be done on the job, but a basic understanding of MWD will be taught)
Day 4 will be on the Gamma Ray system & what parameters need to be followed. GR is a tricky system because it needs to be watched closely by the operator to be certain the system has not locked up or frozen. This happens frequently with different types of EDR systems. The trainee will be taught what to watch out for & what to do if a glitch occurs. Also, how to interpret formations, building logs, & log deciphering. A Gamma Ray test will be given and if passed the trainee will have a good understanding of gamma and logging!
With a combined experience level of over 50 years in the industry, we will train newbies to experienced operators. We will come to your office or shop and train or our coaches can travel to a rig site to provide training. We are flexible and know that there is not a perfect scenario for training sessions due to people having to be on site. Our coaches are all top level professionals. When you hire us you will get the best. All our coaches have been in the MWD & Directional Industry for many years, and resumes will be supplied for your review. We strive for the best we can be and we want your company to succeed, so we want your people to be the best they can be too!
CLIENTS: We come to you! We are strategically based to arrive at your office or shop and begin training quickly.

In our Las Vegas, NV seminars we teach MWD practices, logic, and safety. We teach theory and we use certain props to demonstrate. We do focus on training via our example videos & materials to familiarize students with the procedures of MWD and directional drilling.
MWD COACH: Safety Training
SAFETY is a term that is used in today's workforce quite a bit. But when you are talking about the oilfield & drilling rigs, safety is key.
There are countless stories of deaths, maimings, and simple slip & falls that could have been prevented with some basic foresight. A wise man said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Most often we all are careless at times, but when we are working in a highly stressful, high dollar, heavy duty environment safety needs to be second nature.
Hard hats, steel-toed boots, protective eye wear, respirators, face shields, gloves, and numerous other PPE are a necessity for a safe working zone.
Eventhough safety is a very serious matter you & your co-workers can do the job in an enjoyable way. Just have the safety practices learned in the back of your head in case a safety hazard appears.
Familiarizing yourself with the rig is a great starter move. All rigs are similar & once you understand the basic rig principle learning the numerous intricacies of the rig will get much easier.
MWD COACH & Safety
MWD COACH wants everyone to remember SAFETY FIRST, and we add safety into our training program to familiarize trainees with a safe working environment. We explain the proper techniques to repair MWD equipment, what to expect on the rig, how to stay safe & out of the way, and to always think before acting!
No one wants to work with an unsafe co-worker & MWD COACH makes it clear that today's oilfield is a Safety First Zone!
