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.,

Target Group

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.

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.

Course Contents
