Safe operations are profitable operations, and this course offers both operators and service contractors a way to ensure competency and impart domestic on-shore industry level knowledge to their employees.

Learning Outcomes

Students will graduate this class with an understanding of basic well control methods, equipment and pressures associated with containment. They will be required to pass a knowledge test, followed by an assessment at a rig site by a certified field assessor.
