What is the vermeer HDD Circuit Training Program?

Vermeer HDD Circuit training is a comprehensive two-week training program, presented by industry-leading horizontal directional drilling professionals at Vermeer Corporation. Training is conducted in Pella, Iowa, USA, the global headquarters of Vermeer.

HDD Circuit courses are offered in the spring through the fall of each year.

 As the only certificate course accredited by DMACC of its kind in the USA, HDD Circuit training sets the pace for men and women who want or have jobs as horizontal directional drillers.

HDD Circuit trains drill operators for rewarding horizontal directional drilling construction careers. By combining underground construction equipment operation with classroom instruction, and experiencing the dynamic new Vermeer Navigator HDD Simulator™ 1.0, HDD Circuit students gain valuable insight and skills. During training, students learn how to safely and properly operate, transport and maintain horizontal directional drills, as well as use a utility locator, mix mud and use Vermeer Productivity Tools.

Underground drilling jobs are often in high demand, because HDD drills are used in applications like installing, water, sewer or gas lines, or other underground utilities. HDD Circuit students will learn how to operate drills in tight working conditions on developed job sites — like existing home or business areas — or in more open working conditions, like new developments.
