IWCF Drilling Well Control Syllabus Level 3 and 4

Guidance Notes
1.1. Introduction

The new syllabi will:


1) Meet the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) recommendations for enhancements to well control training, examination
and certification as highlighted in Report 476, issued August 2016
2) Allow IWCF to continuously deliver the highest standards of well control training and assessment.

1.2. 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 - well-site based position whose action or inaction could directly influence well control assurance.
Level 3: Equipment Operator - has to perform an action to prevent or respond to well control accident.
Level 4: Supervisor - specifies and has oversight that correct actions are carried out.

1.3. How long is the training course?

The level 2 Drilling Well control training course must be a minimum 20 hours, excluding examination time.

The level 3 and level 4 Drilling Well Control training courses must be a minimum of 32 hours, excluding examination time.

1.4. 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).

1.5. 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.

July 2017 TF-0020 Version 8.0 Page 5 of 98


Printed copies are UNCONTROLLED: It is the user’s responsibility to verify printed material against the controlled document
IWCF Drilling Well Control Syllabus Level 3 and 4

If there is a syllabus learning outcome at Level 2, but not at levels 3 and/or 4, this indicates that IWCF believes Level 3 and 4 candidates should
already have thorough knowledge of this syllabus category.
If there is a syllabus learning outcome for Level 3 but not at Level 4, this indicates IWCF believes all Level 4 candidates should already have thorough
knowledge of this syllabus category.

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.

IWCF recommends a minimum three-month period to build further industry experience and competence before the candidate moves onto the next
level. It is unacceptable for a Level 3 candidate to be enrolled on a Level 4 course at the same time.

2. The Level 2, 3 and 4 syllabi explained

2.1. 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. It is insufficient for any candidate on any level of the course to be coached to pass the assessment.

The quality of teaching must evolve to ensure learning objectives are met. 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”. (IOGP Report 476).

2.2. 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. 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.

Example:
‘During the course, the student will gain an understanding of: Standard Well control methods’.

IWCF Drilling Well Control Syllabus Level 3 and 4

2.3. Learning outcomes

Learning outcomes have been developed for each of the learning objectives contained in the syllabus. 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. These learning outcomes are the basis
for assessment questions.

Example:
‘By the end of the course, the student will be able to: Define and list kill and control methods.’

2.4. Syllabus division

The written test syllabus is divided into two compulsory sections:


- Principles and Procedures
- Equipment.

2.6. Importance Levels

All learning outcomes have an ‘importance’ level which is displayed in the far-right column of the syllabus. The importance is based on the criticality
factor - the potential risk of a candidate not holding the knowledge. The levels shown below are based on the potential risk of the candidate not
having the knowledge:

Importance Level of risk Explanation


10 Critical Could lead to catastrophic damage to life, limb,
environment, industry.
5 Major Major risk factor.
4 Serious Key knowledge – could lead to risk to life, limb and the
environment.
3 Moderate Necessary knowledge.
2 Minor Underpinning knowledge.
1 Foundation Foundation knowledge.
