IADC is proud to offer WellSharp-a revolutionary well control training and assessment program. The result of a collaborative industry effort, the WellSharp program emphasizes rigorous training for every person with well control responsibilities, whether office- or rig-based.
Trainees gain more in-depth knowledge, well-honed role-specific skills, and a greater confidence that they know what to do to prevent incidents or, in the unforeseen event of a well control incident, respond swiftly and appropriately.
Enhanced assessment process
A significantly improved assessment process will ensure integrity and international uniformity:
The WellSharp program, which evolved from WellCAP, was created at the request of industry. WellSharprepresents an industry-led effort to redefine well control training and assessment. IADC members-representing operators, drilling contractors, well servicing companies, professional trainers, and well control specialists-developed the WellSharp program in collaboration with the WellSharp Advisory Panel, the IADC Well Control Committee, and other industry groups. The content-specific workgroups set quality benchmarks and criteria to ensure that accredited training providers adhere to a core curriculum and to content delivery and assessment requirements.
