    Student Feedback

  • See what others have said about this course
  • Well Control Preparation Training

    Learn to control kicks safely on a DrillSIM 20 drilling simulator. Practice our surface and subsea scenarios designed to exceed IWCF and WellCAP examination requirements.

    Cover the core topics of both IWCF and WellCap at a more relaxed pace in five days instead of three.

    This means...

  • Plenty of mock test exercises.
  • Much more individual simulator time.
  • Learn the secrets to easily ace Trip Sheet and Gauge Questions.
  • Ideal for anyone who would like extra simulator and mock test practice before registering in a formal Well Control course.

    Maximum Class Size: 15 people

    Cost: $1000.00 CAD plus 5% GST per person.
