Who

should

attend

DWC level 2 is recommended for “all members of the wellsite operations team working in roles which may directly contribute to the creation, detection or control of a well influx” (OGP Report 476).


Level 2 is a prerequisite for candidates who are obtaining IWCF certification for the first time and may wish to progress to level 3.

Admission to the course is open for individuals who have completed previous IWCF drilling well control level 3 or level 4 certification achieving at least 80% in each component.

Although there is no hard pre-requisite, delegates are expected to have basic well control knowledge (IWCF/IADC level 3 or 4).


Ideally, rig teams are trained in their normal setup, with the following positions attending:

– (Assistant) Drillers (level 3)
– Toolpushers (Level 4)
– Rig Managers (Level 4)
– DSV / Company men (Level 4)
– Drilling Engineers
– Drilling Managers
– Operations Managers

Timing &

structure

This one-week course includes interactive classroom sessions where well control principles, procedures and equipment are covered. The DWC level 2 program will be covered in accordance with the IWCF syllabus.


The classroom (theoretical) sessions are structured to allow group participation and discussion.

This one-week course includes lessons and activities that go beyond basic well control knowledge and include topics that have not been previously covered in an IWCF certified course. Delegates explore well control case studies and are encouraged to share their own experience.

An 
IWCF enhanced practical assessment and standard written examination is an integral part of the program.

The program includes classroom tutoring, case studies and simulated activities. The course content goes beyond basic well control knowledge and includes topics that have not been previously covered in IWCF/IADC certified courses. The teambased scenario exercises involve a high level of interaction and teamwork.

There is no written or practical exam; instead each delegate is assessed on his or her technical and non-technical competence.

We can modify this program to suit individual client requirements.
