It is no surprise the growth in construction and telecommunications throughout America has led to an increased need to bury fiber optics, electrical lines, water pipes, sewer lines, etc. Further, the use of backhoes or excavators isn't always practical, feasible or economical, due to existing hazards or terrain. That leaves Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) as the most efficient option and the fastest-growing type of equipment for utilities, municipalities, contractors and the communications industry. ATS Specialized has the knowledge, curricula and instructional staff to deliver your organization the highest quality training for your directional drill operators.
