IADC Rig Pass Program

IADC’s Rig Pass® program is an accreditation system delivering a standardized safety orientation program for new employees, preparing the employees for almost any operating environment, at almost any site, onshore or offshore.

IADC’s Rig Pass is endorsed by SafeGulf and SafeLandUSA*.

The IADC RIG PASS accreditation system is designed to meet two requirements:

  • To identify core elements of training programs for new rig employees, and
  • To provide a means of recognizing programs that adhere to those elements.

Completion of an IADC Rig Pass or IADC Rig Pass Course-to-Go accredited program confirms that personnel have met basic requirements defined by safety and training professionals in the drilling industry, irrespective of the rig’s location.

IADC Rig Pass accreditation is open to all drilling and ancillary service contractors, commercial providers or educational institutions and agencies.

Operators and contractors may be confident in the knowledge that every program is subject to review and evaluation by independent parties. Site visits and maintenance of an audit history are key parts of the IADC Rig Pass system.
