Virtual Training

The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented situation which has resulted in worldwide restrictions being imposed. To ensure the safety and well being of employees and well operations crews is maintained, we have been investigating innovative ways for our accredited centres to deliver training during this time.

As a temporary measure, IWCF’s Board of Directors have approved the introduction of virtual classroom training. This solution allows us to accommodate the requirement for training during the COVID-19 pandemic, whilst maintaining our high standards and integrity. We are committed to collaborating with our accredited centres to ensure this can be delivered effectively to candidates globally.

Candidates must complete all assessments including practical assessments at an accredited centre once social distancing measures are lifted. There will be a maximum time of 90 days to complete assessments following training however this will be monitored in line with government advice regarding travel.

As virtual training applications are approved, we will update our virtual training page and website locations map to show this as an additional delivery option. You can search for them by using the the ‘Programmes’ filter and selecting ‘Virtual Training.’
All COVID-19 updates can be found on our dedicated page here.

Before your Course

All candidates must register in FORUM before booking an IWCF course. If you have not already registered as a candidate in FORUM, you can do so here. Once you have registered you will be given your unique Candidate Registration (CR) number.

Book your course by selecting your preferred training centre from our Locations Map. Once you have chosen a centre, please contact them directly for the course dates and costs and provide the centre representative with your CR number.

You can also check with your chosen centre if your assessment will be paper based or digital before attending.

During your course

When attending your course, you are required to provide a valid photographic ID. You should also bring a calculator with you.

To help prepare for your assessment you can download the IWCF app by searching for ‘IWCF’ in the Apple and Android stores. Complete the mock digital assessment which is available in the app to show you what to expect on the day. By completing the mock digital assessment you can test the assessment interface, open and enlarge images and learn how the kill sheet section will display during the assessment.

You can also take a look at our Learning Resources and Digital Assessment video for more information.

After your course

After you have completed your course at an accredited training centre, you will be able to view your results in your FORUM account. This can take up to 72 hours after your assessment to be updated.

If a pass mark of 70% or more is achieved you will receive a link to your temporary eCert. This link will be sent to the email address used to register in FORUM.

Within 90 days of receiving your temporary eCert you will receive your permanent eCert.

Level 2 eCerts are valid for 5 years and Level 3 and 4 eCerts are valid for 2 years.
