Intertek Well Control Certification Training

Intertek Well Control is an accredited provider of IADC and IWCF well control certification programs.

To Intertek, being an accredited Well Control program provider means more than simply administering tests and distributing certificates. We understand that the industry’s top organizations are looking for Well Control programs that will develop higher levels of competency and provide their employees the ability to transition the knowledge they learned during training back to the worksite.

Intertek is committed to the success of our students. This is accomplished by applying Total Quality Assurance approaches to help students improve comprehension and increase knowledge retention. We trust the quality of our courses and the expertise of our instructors so much, we are now waiving our retake fees for all initial exam retakes. 

We are keeping your needs in mind.  If you need more flexibility in the training schedule, we can be flexible in what we offer ... along with when and where we hold the training.
