Receive a Falck Safety Services certificate of accreditation
Receive a certificate of competency in Well Control from Falck Safety Services. Available to print or email immediately after course completion.
Well Control Wallet Card
Receive a Supervisory level Wallet Card for Workover / Coiled Tubing / Snubbing / Wireline Well Control (Supervisory) course. An electronic copy is sent to your email, and a physical copy is delivered to your doorstep, by Falck Safety Services.
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.
The course covers all material required under the previously approved IADC Wellcap well control program. Key topics include fundamental well pressures, procedures, fluids, and kill methods with simulation. See detailed outline below.
After successfully completing the course and achieving a passing grade on the final exam you will receive a Falck Safety Services certificate at the Supervisory level in Workover/Completions, Coiled Tubing, Snubbing, and Wireline. This certificate is recognized across the globe.
If you complete any of our online, Fundamental and Supervisory level Well Servicing courses (Wireline, Coiled Tubing, Snubbing, or Workover/Completions), you will receive a Falck Safety Services certificate of accreditation. This certification meets all standards under the previously approved IADC Wellcap well control program. IADC no longer supports online delivery of the Fundamental and Supervisory courses.
