The IADC WellSharp Oil & Gas Operator Representative Workover & Intervention course is essential training for those primarily responsible for overseeing coiled tubing, snubbing, wireline, and/or workover operational processes of well control.

Designed For

The course has been designed for well site supervisory and office-based personnel involved in the operational decision-making process for well control and/or involved in design of well barriers. For example, Wellsite Leaders/Company Man, Company Representative, All Superintendents, Production/Company Engineer, Consultant, General Desk Engineer/Specialist/SME, and other individuals that are not direct operators or supervisors of equipment and require a broader scope of knowledge beyond their product line.

Entry Requirements

Prior IWCF or IADC certification is recommended but not mandatory.  The training is role-specific so previous experience is assumed. Please contact us to discuss candidate suitability if you have any doubts or queries.

Course Delivery

The course duration is 36 classroom hours plus an IADC assessment (4.5 days of training and an exam on day 5). Training is delivered through presentation of a series of interactive lectures supported by videos and animations, supplemented by a classroom workbook and further self-study exercises, and practical exercises on a simulator.

The 5-day course ends with a 3.5-hour online assessment on the final day which will be administered by IADC and invigilated by an independent proctor.


Successful completion of the course and a pass mark of 75% in the online written assessment will result in IADC WellSharp certification which is valid for two years.
