MDS Objective

The objective of this four-day course is to teach well control competency to drillers and others requiring a Level 3 certification. A secondary objective is to prepare participants for either the IWCF or IADC WellSharp well control exams.

Certification is given for Surface or Combined Surface and Subsea. BOP equipment, kick detection, shut-in procedures, kill sheets, and methods of well control are taught. The simulator work in the course focuses on detecting kicks, and closing in the well, and handling an assortment of simulated problems.
