The IWCF Level 3 Drilling Well Control course is essential training for those currently working in a role that is expected to shut-in a well. The course aims to reinforce and improve the candidate’s existing knowledge and appreciation of the various stages of shutting-in a well; from kick detection to shutting in the well, to monitoring once the well is shut in and monitoring the well-kill operation.
The Level 3 (Driller) course is designed for anyone expected to shut-in a well, such as drillers and assistant drillers.
Please note: IWCF training levels 2 to 4 are designed to be sequential and first-time candidates are expected to complete Level 2 before progressing to Level 3 or Level 4. However, the training levels are also designed to be role-specific and dependent on the candidate’s work experience. For guidance and advice on which level of training you are eligible for, please get in touch.
The candidate must be pre-registered with IWCF and able to provide his/her 6-digit IWCF Candidate Registration (CR) Number.
Prior certification is not required but previous experience in an assistant driller or driller role during drilling operations is assumed. Please contact us to discuss candidate suitability if you have any doubts or queries.
2 written papers: Equipment and Principles & Procedures
1 practical assessment
Successful completion of the course and a pass mark of 70% or above in all IWCF practical and written assessments will result in IWCF Level 3 certification which is valid for two years.
The 5-day course is delivered through presentation of a series of interactive lectures supported by videos and animations, group discussion, and drilling simulation exercises, supplemented by a classroom workbook and further self-study exercises. Level 3 training may be partly combined with Level 4 training for common modules and during simulator-based training with each candidate assuming their respective role as per normal drilling operations.
