IWCF Rotary Drilling Well Control

Introductory, Driller and supervisory-level well control training designed for personnel involved in drilling operations conducted onshore and offshore

This course focuses on learning how to recognize, interpret and respond during well control situations.  The curriculum includes additional hands-on practical training, including case studies, problem-solving scenarios and learning laboratories, resulting in higher student engagement. Intertek’s IWCF Performance Well Control training course exceeds the traditional drilling well control curriculum by incorporating human factors, specifically the importance of situational awareness and decision making in well control.  The Total Quality Assurance course addresses holistic on-the-job performance, and is not just about learning formulas and performing calculations.  Each session encourages greater participant involvement and provides more collaborative learning opportunities than traditional classroom training.

Driller and supervisory-level well control training is provided for surface and subsea stack.
