TRUE Training contains 12 modules which provides the framework for the course. TRUE can be used separately to provide a basic level of understanding about downhole drilling operations.

TRUE was designed for operator, drilling contractor, and service company personnel. The handbook is pocket size, rig site durable, graphic, multiple checklists, and is easily understood. The rig team conducts a self-assessment of the well plan by preparing written action plans to mitigate potential problems.

A common language is established, rig team members buy-in to the well plan and are assigned specific responsibilities. The action plans are used during the pre-tour meeting to alert the rig team to upcoming problems. By calmly deciding as a team the various options during the TRUE course, unwise snap decisions, often made in the midst of a crisis may be avoided.
