The International Well Control Forum (IWCF), the independent organisation that sets international well control standards, has launched a new online administration system.
The system, called Forum, is designed to make the well control training process easier for both centres and candidates.
The simplified online scheduling process replaces the previous paper-based system.
Antony Quin, general manager of IWCF, said: “Giving candidates an online profile makes the registration process easier and also enables them – as well as employers and potential employers – to verify their qualifications.”
IWCF has recently invested in new facilities at its headquarters in Montrose, UK to improve training for well control assessors and instructors who address drilling operations and well intervention activities.
