IWCF launched the Level-1 well control awareness course following recommendations in Report 476 from the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) after the Macondo tragedy. Level-1 supports IWCFs drive to increase the understanding of how well control incidents can occur, their consequences and prevention methods. 

Level-1 is the industry's first free e-learning course which is available now to everyone.


Who is the course for?

  • Students and graduates
  • Personnel with secondary involvement in well operations, e.g. office based staff or third parties involve in rig operations
  • Those who simply have an interest in well control! 


What do the modules cover?

Level-1 contains 7 modules including:

  • Overview of Oil and Gas
  • Life Cycle of a Well
  • Drilling Rigs
  • Well Control During Drilling Operations
  • Well Intervention and Workover
  • Pressure Control During Well Intervention
  • Conclusion


Do you have to sit an exam?

At the end of each module there is a Knowledge Check to confirm your learning. On completion of all 7 modules candidates will sit a short exam where a pass mark of 70%+ must be achieved. This will then allow candidates to access the downloadable certificate.
