IWCF Drilling Well Control Level 4

Duration: 5 days

About this course

The IWCF DWC level 4 course is for those working in wellsite supervisory roles and for office-based personnel that are primarily involved in the operational decision-making process.

The course builds on the level 3 course content and focuses on more complex aspects of well control and well kill methodology. The course is delivered through interactive lecturing supported by animations, group discussions, desktop exercises and alternated with simulator exercises.

Level 3 and 4 training is a combined class.

Course fee for the IWCF Drilling Well Control level 3 or level 4 course is EUR 1550
(excl. VAT)

Audience

Designed for anyone working in a supervisory role and involved in the well design and operational decision-making process of drilling, such as:

  • Drilling supervisor
  • Drilling superintendent
  • Toolpusher
  • Rig manager
  • Drilling contractor
  • Senior well engineer
  • Operational well engineer

Certification

Candidates can select either “combined surface and subsea BOP” or “surface BOP” certification. They will take two written exams (principles & procedures and equipment) and will undergo a practical assessment on the simulator and must achieve a minimum score of 70% in each. Level 4 certificates are valid for 2 years.

Online courses

Well Academy is using the platform ‘Zoom’ for virtual classroom delivery. Prior to the course, candidates will receive a soft copy of the course manual and joining instructions. A maximum of 7 hours per day will be spent on actual virtual lecturing. Candidates are expected to read the manual and work on questions after class and in the evening.

After completing the virtual training, candidates can take virtual assessments on the final day (Friday). Virtual practical assessments (DWC only) can be taken on the same week as the virtual training. To be eligible to complete virtual assessments, candidates must have successfully completed well control training previously and attend a virtual training course before taking the virtual assessments.

If candidates haven’t completed well control training previously, they will have up to 90 days to take the assessments at an accredited IWCF centre. Our Well Academy centres are open for assessments and you just need to contact us to arrange a suitable date and time.

Note: should attendance at an IWCF accredited centre still be difficult for new candidates we can assist employers with seeking dispensation, enabling these candidates to proceed with virtual assessments.
