This programme is designed for people in critical well control positions on drilling installations as well as onshore roles. Candidates will complete an IWCF accredited training course, taught according to IWCF syllabus, to prepare them for their assessment.
IWCF follow IOGP recommendations as to what course levels candidates should sit. Download a copy of the latest IOGP 476 Levels Guidance here.
Different levels of training require different assessments and are valid for varying lengths:
- Level 2 training consists of two assessments. If passed, the certificate is valid for 5 years.
- Level 3 and 4 training consists of two assessments and a practical assessment using simulator equipment. If passed, the certificate is valid for 2 years.
The learning element of a Level 2 course can be completed online, however the assessment must be completed at an accredited training centre. For Level 3 and 4 courses, both the learning and assessment elements must be completed at an accredited training centre.
Our Enhanced programme is also available to candidates who have previously attended their suitable level of role based training and achieved at least an 80% pass mark on the previous two examinations. Click here for more information on our Enhanced programme.
