The objective of the WellSHARP® Awareness Course is to train participants in the basic and fundamental concepts of a kick or influx; that they recognize an indication of a manifestation, as well as other challenges that arise during the well construction process so that the pertinent control measures can be taken.

This course is the recommended training for people who need a basic understanding of well control operations. The course is available to personnel in supporting roles (for example, to all personnel working nearby or supporting drilling, repair, or completion operations, including office personnel and not working on a rig). Finally, for Students who want to know more about Well Control techniques, it would be of great benefit.

The objective of the WellSHARP® Introductory Course is to analyze the pressures involved in drilling a well, as well as the causes and indications of a threat or influx, description of the equipment and closing procedures. Selecting the control method with the BHA at the bottom and outside of the well.

This course is intended for related or prospective personnel engaging in support activities in oil and gas wells drilling. In addition, it emphasizes the prevention and detection of feints or influxes and is the recommended training, according to the I.A.D.C. WellSHARP®, for those identified in the Global Well Control Training and Assessment Standard. As recommended by I.A.D.C., this course should be taken before the Drilling Level course. Also, for Students who wish to enter the world of Well Control, they will receive the bases for future higher level courses.

Actually, during an real Well Control operation, the Supervisor’s role is quite different from the Driller’s role, so considering the Supervisor Certification as a “higher” level compared to Driller Certification is a concept totally wrong. JF Gestión Integral shares and spreads the I.A.D.C. idea for which is important that each role has its own specific certification and does not consider the certification of the Supervisor of a "higher" level, but different.

Although the test with the simulator does not require the assistance of the Proctor, it is an integral part of the evaluation of any candidate whose course requires it. Not executing this test is equivalent to not having passed all the necessary steps for the qualification. We recommend ALL CLIENTS to confirm the presence of the simulator and its effective use throughout the course.

To obtain the I.A.D.C. WellSHARP® certificate for the course that requires an online test, the Participant is required to take a test.

To pass the exam, a 70% of the total scores must be reached. If the participant reaches a percentage less than 50%, he is not entitled to take another evaluation exam and must repeat the whole course.

Participants who reach between 50% and 69% of the total scores, have the right to take another evaluation exam (re-test). However, if the participant does not pass this second exam (70% +), he does not pass the course or obtain the certificate; therefore he will need to repeat it.

The participant who qualifies to take a second exam or re-test, can do it (if he wishes to), the same day of the failed test or within 45 days from the date of the first exam, without need to repeat the course.

The re-test must be taken with the same Training School where the participant took the course.

Certificates issued DO NOT HAVE A GRACE PERIOD, the expiration date they state is the end date (this applies to I.A.D.C. and I.W.C.F. as well). Only the Awareness Level Course Certificate has no expiration date.

I.A.D.C. recommends taking the new course prior to the expiration of the current certificate.
