Driller Training Program

The Brukunga Drilling Research and Training Facility, officially opened by the Premier of South Australia the Honourable Jay Weatherill in November 2011, is Australia’s first purpose-designed site for drilling technology testing and traning.

Based in the Adelaide Hills, just a 45 minute drive from the Adelaide Airport, this provides a suitable location to undertake applied research and training. Brukunga is also the site of South Australian Country Fire Service State Training Centre, which provides accommodation, catering and classroom facilities.

DET CRC provides access to the site for Registered Training Organisations to run courses in the real world environment of our drill site.  The Australian Training Alliance and Training Prospects regularly run courses at Brukunga.
