Designed For

The IADC Wellsharp “Well Control for Drilling Operations – for Supervisors” course has been designed for tool pushers, drilling engineers, drilling supervisors, superintendents, drilling foremen, company men and others with a requirement to hold an accredited well control certificate at Supervisory level. The training is role-specific and is focused on well kill procedures.

Course Delivery

The course is delivered over 4 days through presentation of a series of interactive lectures supported by videos and animations, supplemented by a classroom workbook and further self-study exercises and practical work on a drilling simulator. Under the Well sharp programe and unlike IWCF training, IADC Supervisor Level candidates are taught completely separately from IADC Driller Level candidates and will not be in a mixed class. The course ends with an online assessment on the final day which will be administered by IADC and invigilated by an independent proctor.

Entry Requirement

Prior IWCF or IADC certification at Driller or Supervisor Level is recommended but not mandatory. The training is role-specific so previous experience in a supervisory role during drilling operations is assumed.
