Diamond Drilling Specification Manual and Course Outline.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria.
This publication presents the standards required of a person practicing diamond drilling in western Canada and provides an outline for teaching the skills and knowledge. It is divided into two parts. The Diamond Drilling Specification Manual establishes the levels of skill and knowledge required in the four certified levels of diamond drilling. The manual not only establishes the standards required but also enables employers to relate pay and responsibility to a uniform standard. A method is included for assessing and assigning certification for drillers who have not been trained through this program. The Diamond Drilling Course Outline represents the requirements for teaching diamond drilling for levels one through four. Informative material found at the beginning of the level 1 course outline provides a general description and aim, class limit and instructor requirements, facilities requirements, equipment requirements, performance check list, and suggested weekly timetable. Summaries of the course outline for each level are provided. The course outline for each level specifies the objectives, location(s) of instruction, task, teaching points, teaching method(s), time required, material and equipment required, teacher suggestions, checks, and references.
