    Warning: Do Not Be Fooled by Imitators

    It has been brought to our attention that another training facility is advertising under the names Canada's Drilling School and Top Canadian Drilling School in what we believe is a clear attempt to ride on our reputation. Having apparently been unsuccessful in developing their own brand name, they have resorted to misleading our customers into believing they are dealing with us. Don't be fooled by this phishing technique: Make sure you are dealing with the REAL Canadian Drilling School! If the link takes you anywhere other than canadiandrillingschool.org, canadiandrillingschool.com, or IWCF-well-control.com and the name on the website is not Canadian Drilling School, displaying our copyrighted logo, you are not on an authentic CDS site.
