Drilling Well Control

Aberdeen Drilling School is the largest independent well control training centre in Europe, having developed and delivered well control training in over 50 countries worldwide since its inception in 1982. Our range of IWCF and IADC accredited well control courses have continually been at the forefront of developments within the drilling industry and we work in partnership with both certification bodies to ensure that our courses are operationally relevant and accessible to all levels of personnel.  

Our in-house technical management, graphics, teaching, and customer service teams strive to create a supportive and engaging learning atmosphere for our customers. Our Training Centres are also fitted with full-size, rig-floor drilling simulators which we use to test teamwork and problem-solving skills in a realistic but safe environment.

Aberdeen Drilling School’s certified Drilling Well Control courses are offered at various role-specific levels for drill crew, well engineers, drilling supervisors, OIMs, and others with a requirement to hold an IWCF or IADC Well Control certificate.
