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 have been investigating ways for our accredited centres to deliver training and assessments during this time.

In April virtual training was introduced and has since been successfully implemented globally, providing an alternative short-term 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 will be offering both theoretical and practical virtual assessments from October 2020. This will be offered on a short-term basis as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.

Please visit our dedicated COVID-19 page for the candidate eligibility criteria.

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.
