Virtual Training Providers

Virtual Training Providers

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 investigated alternative ways for our accredited centres to deliver training and assessments during this time.

In April 2020, virtual training was introduced and has since been successfully implemented globally, providing an innovative solution to training centres and candidates who could not attend face to face training. In line with our mission to ensure competency throughout this pandemic, IWCF began offering both theoretical and practical virtual assessments from October 2020.

To help us maintain and assure the high standards of quality and integrity expected at IWCF, we have been conducting extensive analysis of data throughout this period. This evaluation has demonstrated the efficacy of IWCF virtual classroom training and remote assessments. One of the key findings from the analysis, supported by statistical evidence, shows that there is no functional difference in candidate assessment results between those who completed an IWCF virtual classroom course versus IWCF face-to-face classroom training.

The results of the analysis performed allows us to continue to offer virtual training and assessments as an option for all IWCF accredited training providers, subject to compliance with IWCF guidelines and requirements.

Below is a list of training providers who are accredited to run virtual classroom training and assessments. Their accreditation for virtual training and assessments in highlighted after the training provider name. If a centre is accredited for virtual training only they will be shown as ‘Centre Name (Virtual Training). If a centre is accredited for both virtual training and assessments they will be shown as ‘Centre Name (Virtual Training and Assessments)’.

This list is updated regularly with the latest accredited providers.

You can find a list of accredited training providers who have resumed face to face classroom training and/or assessments in line with local government guidance here.
