IWCF Well Control Training


CDS: Canada's International Drilling School

Welcome to Canadian Drilling School, the preferred location for taking IWCF training in Canada, the Middle East, and North Africa.

IWCF Well Control

Canadian Drilling School, which has its corporate head office located in Calgary, Alberta, has accredited IWCF well control centers with much better-than-average success rates.

You will find our fully IWCF accredited instructors quite different to the others you may have encountered before:

  • We will not read pages of vague information designed to baffle all but the experts in the field. We will explain in simple terms the necessary details you need to thoroughly understand the principles and procedures of well control.
  • We do not hand out class material that is so illegible as to be useless. In many cases, our illustrations are originals made entirely in-house.
  • We will not swamp you with endless "class exercises" designed to occupy you as we disappear to answer phone calls from "Rigs in Trouble". In many cases, we will show you step-by-step the easy way of tackling some of IWCF's most complicated problems.
  • Canadian Drilling School holds approximately two 5-day Rotary Drilling Well Control courses each month in Kelowna, British Columbia and Abu Dhabi, UAE, both at both Levels 3 and 4, in a choice of surface or combined surface and subsea stacks.

    Our modern, comfortable classrooms, small class sizes, lots of simulator time, and our innovative use of animations and other audio-visuals make our programs a fun learning experience. We don't just teach you what is needed to pass the exams, but are committed to helping you understand!

    Canadian Drilling School uses Endeavor Simulators, which are the most modern, cutting-edge simulators available anywhere in the world. These amazing simulators will almost have you believe you are on a real rig with a real well-control situation. Our Endeavor simulators will give you hands-on experience that cannot be replicated by any other competitor.

    Successful candidates will receive IWCF certification in Rotary Drilling Well Control at the Level and type of stack for which they registered.

    IWCF well control courses are designed for people that have five or more years of experience in the drilling industry. All registrations are subject to candidates possessing the appropriate IWCF prerequisite requirements.
