IADC is pleased to announce the launch of its WellCAP Plus Program. WellCAP Plus provides an alternative to the existing WellCAP Supervisory Level instruction.
It is designed to encourage participation among multiple levels of decision makers including drilling superintendents, operations engineers, rig superintendents, rig managers, and all other qualified individuals. The program utilizes a facilitated learning approach intended to improve critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The program embraces a Problem Solving Model to develop these skills.
Course content is flexible, yet focused on progressively difficult exercises for which participants must develop team solutions. Participants must pass a rigorous entry examination. In a departure from traditional WellCAP instruction, no exit examination is required; participants are judged on course participation and teamwork.
WellCAP Plus instruction may be provided only by training providers accredited by IADC to do so utilizing certified IADC WellCAP Plus Facilitators. Participants will receive a WellCAP Plus certificate upon course completion.
NOTE: WellCAP Plus is not intended to replace site-specific training. Site-specific training for all stakeholders is encouraged when the anticipated characteristics and challenges of a particular well (e.g., deepwater, HPHT) warrant additional pre-planning measures and focused mitigation procedures.
