The Level 2 (Introductory) 4-days course is designed for delegates "working in roles which may directly contribute to the creation, detection or control of a well influx" (P.9, IOGP Report 476).
This course is also designed to give potential well control certification candidates an awareness on well control Theory, Practices and Equipment as a preparation prior to taking levels 3 & 4.
The delegates who have little or no industry experience and require a greater depth of theoretical and practical knowledge in achieving a better understanding of drilling equipment, drilling practices and the common problems associated with drilling operations can also attend this introductory course.
The aim of this course is to provide a basic understanding of features of drilling a well and the fundamental principles involved in maintaining well control.
The course is delivered through interactive lectures, presentations, classroom study book, handouts, assignments; exercises etc. There will be two written exams; Equipment and Principles & Procedures. Successful completion of the course and examination will result in IWCF Level 2 certification with 5 years validity.
