CDS: Canada's Drilling School
Welcome to Canadian Drilling School, the preferred location for taking IWCF training in Canada.
IWCF Well Control
Canadian Drilling School, which has its corporate head office located in Calgary, Alberta, is an accredited IWCF well control center with a much better-than-average success rate.
You will find our fully IWCF accredited instructors quite different to the others you may have encountered before:
Canadian Drilling school holds approximately two 5-day Rotary Drilling Well Control courses each month in Calgary both at both Driller and Supervisor Level in a choice of surface or combined surface and subsea stacks. Starting in May, 2013, CDS will begin offering these courses in Nisku, Alberta.
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!
Successful candidates will receive IWCF certification in Rotary Drilling Well Control at Supervisor Level for the 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. We highly recommend that people who have not previously undergone IWCF well control training before should first take our Well Control Preparatory course.
The cost is CAD $2395.00 + 5% TAXIWCF Course Calendar and Registration for further information on our IWCF Well Control Course.
Canadian Drilling School will be expanding to Nisku and is seeking an additional Well Control/Well Intervention instructor/assessor to deliver IWCF Surface and Subsea courses.
The successful candidate will instruct in both API and SI units at our Calgary and Edmonton training facilities and will be expected to maintain our school's pass rate in the high ninety percentile range.
Preference will be given to Candidates who are able to instruct other Drilling and Workover Engineering subjects.
The new instructor can expect to teach two to three IWCF courses in Alberta each month. The CDS payscale for certified IWCF Well Control instructors/assessors is $3500.00 per 5-day course.
Only people who have an engineering degree, five years subsea drilling and workover supervisory experience, and currently have passed their IWCF exams with a pass rate of at least 95% in each category should apply.
Applicants ideally will have some knowledge of course development and instruction. CDS will consider giving Assessor training to the right applicant.
