The IWCF Level 4 Drilling Well Control course is essential training for those working in wellsite supervisory roles and for office-based personnel that are primarily involved in the operational decision-making process and/or well design. The course aims to build on Level 3 course content (including kick detection and shut-in) and focus on more complex aspects of well control and well kill methodology.,
The Level 4 (Supervisor) course is designed for anyone working in a supervisory role and
involved in the well design and operational decision-making process of drilling, such as a
Drilling Supervisor, Superintendent or Company Man, Tool Pusher, OIM, or Rig Manager. To
view the full list of recommended job titles, please refer to the IWCF website:
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 a supervisor 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 4 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 4 training may be partly combined with Level 3 training for common modules and during simulator-based training with each candidate assuming their respective role as per normal drilling operations.
