IWCF Level 3 & 4 Drilling Well Control (Surface & Subsea)


The IWCF Level 3 Drilling Well Control course is essential training for those working in roles where well shut-in might be required. The course aims to strengthen and enhance the candidate's existing knowledge and understanding of the various stages of well shut-in; from kick detection to shutting in the well, to monitoring once the well is shut in, and overseeing the kill operation itself.

Target Group

Level 3 (Driller) course is designed for anyone expected to be able to shut in a well, such as drillers and assistant drillers.

Note: IWCF training levels 2 to 4 are intended 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 meant to be role-specific and dependent on the candidate's work experience. For guidance and advice on which training level you are qualified for, please contact us.


The candidate must be pre-registered with IWCF and able to present their 6-digit IWCF Candidate Registration (CR) Number.

Prior registration is not required, but previous experience in a driller or assistant driller role during drilling operations is expected. Please feel free to contact us to discuss the candidate's suitability if you have any doubts or questions.


The course includes:

2 written exams: Equipment and Principles & Procedures.
1 practical exam.

Successful completion of the course, with a correct answer rate of 70% or higher on both the written and practical IWCF exams, will result in an IWCF certificate valid for 2 years.

Course Contents

The 5-day course is conducted as a series of interactive lectures, supported by videos and animations, group discussions, and drilling simulator exercises. It is supplemented with a classroom workbook and additional self-study exercises. Level 3 training can be partially combined with Level 4 training for shared modules and during simulator-based training, where each candidate assumes their respective roles as they would in normal drilling operations.
