What's the right well control course for me?

These IADC and IWCF courses are built for all levels of oil industry experience.


For non-technical individuals or people entering the drilling or well servicing world for the first time, the courses have prerequisite material sections that provide a basic introduction to oil and gas, an animated overview of fundamental Drilling and Well Servicing Equipment, and an explanation of fundamental math and science concepts, such as Density and Pressure.

For more experienced students, the powerful downhole animations and interactive explanations of concepts such as Formation Pressure and Gas Migration can provide a powerful refresher of important material and fundamental concepts. You can’t understand what is happening deep downhole unless you can visualize it!

How are these well control courses set up?

When building these courses, our goal was to make Well Control training as fun, interesting, and exciting as possible! With that goal in mind, we have put a tremendous amount of multimedia material into our courses. As a student, you will never just be reading or listening to text- this is definitely not a textbook!

Every single part of our courses is full of powerful graphics, informative animations, and real-life images from drilling rigs across the globe. After each lesson- and within many lessons- you will be asked to answer Well Control questions or do Well Control calculations focused on what you just learned. These Well Control exercises make learning a lot more interactive and fun

What is the LearnToDrill accreditation standard?

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 LearnToDrill 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.

How do LearnToDrill courses compare to competitor courses?

We consider our courses to be the best well control courses out there today! Powerful animations, well taught lessons, interactive and exciting learning… and you can get an IADC or IWCF certificate while lying on your couch. What are you waiting for?

Do you offer any discounts for multiple students?

Yes! We love giving discounts. Send us an email at to inquire about discounts. We give discounts for corporations, universities, if you get a friend to buy the course with you, and even if you post on social media about the course. Reach out! 

What is the validity of the courses?

All courses are valid on platform for 3 months from registration. If you want the course to be extended for you, write to and state your reason to get it extended any time for free
