Drilling/Workover/Completions/Wireline/Coiled Tubing/Snubbing Well Control course (Supervisory)

This online training meets all standards of the previously accredited IADC WellCap Well Control program.

Currently, IADC WellSharp(supervisory) is an In-person training and thus no longer certifies this course. If you take this course, you will receive a LearnToDrill certificate. 

As a consultant or field provider, a LearnToDrill Well Control certificate must be sufficient for your needs. Since the course is fully online, highly praised, and very convenient, it is of great value.

Course Objective 


The Supervisory Well Control Training Program offers a comprehensive online learning designed to empower participants with the knowledge, skills, and expertise needed to supervise well control operations in workover, completions, wireline, coiled tubing, and snubbing operations.

It covers a wide range of topics, including Drilling, well control principles, equipment management, contingency planning, and regulatory compliance

Attendees will achieve the following learning outcomes:

  1. Understand the advanced Drilling concepts, well control principles, including pressure control techniques, kick detection, and blowout prevention strategies, laying the foundation for effective supervision of well control operations.

  2. Learn the role and responsibilities of supervisors in overseeing operations and ensuring adherence to best practices.

  3. Familiarize Participants on how to manage well control equipment effectively, including blowout preventers (BOPs), choke manifolds, and hydraulic systems, ensuring equipment reliability and performance during critical operations.

  4. Learn industry standards, regulations, and best practices for ensuring compliance and minimizing risk in the field.

  5. Learn to interpret well data and engineering specifications to determine the appropriate advanced techniques and methodologies.

  6. Develop communication and leadership skills necessary for effectively supervising crews and coordinating with stakeholders.

How does the course work?

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.


What will I learn?

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.

Will I get a Well Control certificate?

After successfully completing the course and achieving a passing grade on the final exam you will receive a LearnToDrill certificate at the Supervisory level in Workover/Completions, Coiled Tubing, Snubbing, and Wireline. This certificate is recognized across the globe.
