ST104 – WellSharp Drilling Operation (Supervisor Level).
This course is essential training for those working in wellsite supervisory roles and for office-based personnel that is primarily involved in the operational decision-making process and/or well design. The course aims to build on the Driller Level course content (including kick detection and shut-in) and focuses on more complex aspects of good control and well-kill methodology.
The course is delivered through a series of interactive lectures supported by videos and animations, supplemented by a classroom workbook and further self-study exercises and practical work on a drilling simulator. The course ends with an online assessment on the final day which will be administered by IADC and invigilated by an independent proctor.
