Course Pre-Requisites

Well Control Level 3 or Well Control Level 4

Target Audience

This course is designed for those responsible for the overall conduct of well control operations.

Course Overview

The concepts presented in the Driller/Level 3 courses are expanded to cover additional topics and complexity and in particular focus on:

  • Advanced influx detection and monitoring
  • Advanced well kill methodology
  • Barriers and well control equipment
  • Organisation of well control operations

Considerable emphasis is placed on exercises using our DS 20 And DS 5000 simulators to consolidate underpinning knowledge.


To pass the assessment and obtain a certificate, candidates must achieve a minimum mark of 70% in each section of the examination.

Candidates undertaking a Level 4 course will also undergo a practical assessment. Assessment is usually conducted in pairs of a driller level candidate and a supervisor level candidate.

Each candidate is required to complete two written test papers which include multiple choice questions and Kill Sheet calculations.
