This four-day course is designed to lay a solid foundation in well control for personnel involved in drilling operations, who have a responsibility for detecting a kick during drilling operations. It includes kick prevention, kick detection, and well monitoring. The course focuses primarily on the responsibilities of the roughnecks and shakerhands in a well control situation.
This course is taught by an IADC or IWCF accredited instructor and is a prerequisite for initial certififcation in the Driller Level Course.

IADC CANDIDATE NOTES:
The IADC has an online WellSharp Practice Exam to help those trainees who have test anxiety and want to become more familiar with the process of taking an online WellSharp exam. Four exams are currently available: Driller-Surface Stack, Driller-Combination Stack, Supervisor-Surface Stack, and Supervisor-Combination Stack. For access to these exams, go to the website listed below. http://www.iadc.org/wellsharp/sample-wellsharp-exams/
IWCF CANDIDATE NOTES:
IWCF candidates must register for an account on FORUM. Once registered and approved by the IWCF, a candidate ID number will be issued. IWCF candidates will need their candidate ID before registering for a well control course. IWCF candidates can register on FORUM at IWCF.org.
The IWCF requires IWCF testing centers to order the IWCF tests ten days prior to the exam date. Therefore, MDS requires all course participants to enroll at least one week prior to the first day of the class. Participants must indicate at the time of enrollment the following information: Type of Certification (Surface or Combined Surface/Subsea), Units of Measurement (API, Metric), and Language for written test. A valid form of identification must be presented on the day of the exam.
