Who takes the Drilling Well Control training course? We recommend personnel in the following positions should attend the appropriate level of training and assessment: Level 2: Operation Team personnel . IWCF Drilling Well Control Syllabus Level 3 and 4 Guidance Notes 1.specifies and has oversight that correct actions are carried out. excluding examination time. 1. July 2017 TF-0020 Version 8.has to perform an action to prevent or respond to well control accident. Level 3: Equipment Operator . examination and certification as highlighted in Report 476. 1. Level 4: Supervisor .3.1. excluding examination time. How long is the training course? The level 2 Drilling Well control training course must be a minimum 20 hours. The level 3 and level 4 Drilling Well Control training courses must be a minimum of 32 hours. issued August 2016 2) Allow IWCF to continuously deliver the highest standards of well control training and assessment. 1. When can a candidate move on from Level 2 to Level 3 and then to Level 4? Level 2 Drilling training courses should be run as a separate course. Level 3 Drilling training courses may be partly combined with the Level 4 Drilling course. Introduction The new syllabi will: 1) Meet the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) recommendations for enhancements to well control training. 1.well-site based position whose action or inaction could directly influence well control assurance.4.0 Page 5 of 98 Printed copies are UNCONTROLLED: It is the user’s responsibility to verify printed material against the controlled document .2.5. How many candidates can a Centre have on a training course? A course can have a maximum of 15 candidates on a training course (depending on room size/facilities/Assessors).

IWCF Drilling Well Control Syllabus Level 3 and 4 If there is a syllabus learning outcome at Level 2. this indicates IWCF believes all Level 4 candidates should already have thorough knowledge of this syllabus category. The Level 2.0 Page 6 of 98 Printed copies are UNCONTROLLED: It is the user’s responsibility to verify printed material against the controlled document . It is insufficient for any candidate on any level of the course to be coached to pass the assessment. Testing understanding IWCF expects candidates’ knowledge and understanding of basic drilling well control to be developed so that they can competently perform their assigned well control duties.2. IWCF recommends a minimum three-month period to build further industry experience and competence before the candidate moves onto the next level. (IOGP Report 476). The use of the wording “learning objective” is in line with the IOGP Report 476 and is a broad overview statement of what the student will be taught during the course. Learning objectives The learning objectives in the syllabus are based on the content (subject matter) the instructor must teach to meet the requirements of this level. If Level 3 and Level 4 Drilling Well Control training courses are partially combined. Level 3 candidates should spend time on training to improve detection and immediate response skills while the Level 4 candidates are taught advanced well control operations. the student will gain an understanding of: Standard Well control methods’. It is unacceptable for a Level 3 candidate to be enrolled on a Level 4 course at the same time. If there is a syllabus learning outcome for Level 3 but not at Level 4. 2. 2. this indicates that IWCF believes Level 3 and 4 candidates should already have thorough knowledge of this syllabus category. Training must be taught in line with the stipulated syllabus and it will not be sufficient to base training on “test-similar” or “test-identical” exam questions to help personnel pass the written exam”. 3 and 4 syllabi explained 2.1. but not at levels 3 and/or 4. The quality of teaching must evolve to ensure learning objectives are met. July 2017 TF-0020 Version 8. Example: ‘During the course.

The outcome indicates how each learning objective will be fulfilled with a detailed description of the skills a student must have at the end of the course.5.
