FAQ

How does the course work?

The course is fully self paced! The online material (quizzes and videos) can be viewed and refreshed at your own pace. After that, the simulation component is iPad based. Both items must be completed and passed to complete the course.

What will I learn?

The course covers all material required by the IADC (International Association of Drilling Contractors), in their WellCap program. Key topics include fundamental well pressures, procedures, fluids, and kill methods with simulation. See detailed outline below.

Will I get a Well Control certificate?

After successfully completing the course and achieving a passing grade on the final exam you will receive an IADC certificate at the Fundamental level in Workover/Completions, Coiled Tubing, Snubbing, and Wireline. This certificate is recognized across the globe.
