has recently invested in new facilities at its headquarters in Montrose, UK to improve training for well control assessors and instructors.
IWCF plans to make it available free-of-charge on its website as part of this drive.
The online offering is the latest initiative in IWCF s ongoing campaign to increase understanding of what triggers a well control incident, the impact and how such incidents can be prevented.
Kevin Keable, Managing Director of Oilennium, stated, Given that the course will be made available worldwide by IWCF at no cost and will play a key role in helping IWCF to improve safety globally, it must provide a highly compelling and effective learning experience.
On the fifth day, an examination was conducted for the participants by an independent assessor brought in by IWCF.
I will highly recommend this company to anyone requiring an IWCF certificate," Milne pointed out.
The purpose of the IWCF organisation was to create the minimum standard of operation internationally which has been very successful," she added.
Commenting on his appointment, Conroy said: "During these challenging times within the oil and gas industry, I am very much looking forward to working within IWCF.
Finally, assisting IWCF to update the tools we use to assess personnel competencies at all levels will be a critical function for me in this new role.
The centre conducts a large number of courses in safety and first aid and technical training in reservoir engineering, production engineering, drilling engineering, completion and work over, geology and geophysics and artificial lift in addition to IWCF
and IADC courses, sea survival, fire-fighting, safety and risk management, defensive driving (both heavy duty and light duty), desert driving, and other courses.
