We designed our IWCF Level 2 Well Intervention Pressure Control course, in alignment with the IWCF syllabus, specifically for junior level operational roles including Floorhand, Motorhand and Derrickhand. As the focus is on learning the core principles of life-cycle management of operational wells along with key activities like well stimulation to longer term pressure control, this introductory course also suits other key support roles such as engineering or other operational teams.  Your IWCF journey undertaken with us will benefit from;

– Access to leading instructors. Picked from the global stage because of their skills, our instructors bring passion and an ability to go the extra mile. Their thorough understanding of your roles impacts their teaching style with an educational experience to fully resonate with your real working world in a way you can actually apply.

–  ‘Best-in-class’ learning materials for your IWCF level 2 pressure control course. Our crafted IWCF syllabus materials benefit from the feedback from thousands of students to ensure your learning is optimal – and will support knowledge retention and real world value.

Professional facilities. From our one-of-a-kind drilling simulator, spacious classrooms and common areas you will build your oil and gas industry learning in a professional training facility. With staff whose care, our attitude is that your acquisition of relevant knowledge is central to a long and safe career – and one where your will gain real knowledge for real insights.

Our IWCF courses and training approach are widely recognised as industry leading. It is an opportunity for you to start as you mean to go on – with quality in pressure control training!

IWCF Well Intervention Pressure Control Level 2

Our 4 day accredited IWCF Level 2 Well Intervention Pressure Control training develops and builds an understanding of well intervention pressure control for those in roles contributing to the creation, detection or control of a well influx. 

This Well Intervention Pressure Control Level 2 course is customised to cater to those working with appropriate monitoring as operators (eg Floorhand, Motorhand, Derrickhand). Focused on knowledge in Wireline, Coiled Tubing or Snubbing Operations, this IWCF Well Intervention course includes both compulsory and optional modules and is relevant to those working in other roles that may contribute to the creation, detection or control of an unplanned well influx during live well intervention work.

In line with International Well Control Forum standards our training ensures you not only acquire the theoretical principles of Well Intervention Pressure Control but are able to put these principles into action through real-life hands-on scenarios using our state of the art simulation-based learning.

The IWCF Well Intervention Pressure Control course includes compulsory and optional course elements as follows

Completion Operations:
  • Well Intervention Pressure Control incidents
  • Well Integrity assurance including pressure monitoring, risk management,  management of change, control drills and well handover
  • Well control hydrostatic, formation and fracture pressure
  • Barrier management, verification, inflow and equipment testing
  • Shut-in procedures 
  • Well kill methods
  Completion Equipment:
  • Introduction to well completion
  • Wellhead and tube hanger
  • Tubing, flow couplings and tubing movement
  • Safety valves
  • Flow control devices
  • Packers and equipment 
  • Landing nipples, plugs and WEGS
Optional Contents addressing application, equipment, barriers, pressure control and operations:
  • Wireline Operations 
  • Coiled Tubing Operations 
  • Snubbing Operations

To successfully complete this course, you are assessed on both compulsory components and one or more of the optional components identified above.

Once you successfully complete this course, you’ll receive a certificate. It is an IWCF certificate of completion that is valid for 5 years.

Successful completion of the assessment at the end of the course is based on achieving a 70%pass mark.

Harness Energy (RTO 40521) is accredited and audited by IWCF to be able to deliver this technical Oil and Gas industry training.
