ABOUT THE NEW COURSE
The technical content of the course focuses on the low-probability but high-impact scenarios, which are addressed through case studies and are typically outside the scope of WellSharp. The participants must develop team solutions for case studies and decision points that are progressively difficult. The course also requires facilitated learning of human factors and CRM skills in the context of well control.
To qualify for entrance into the course, participants must pass the appropriate WellSharp exam at a higher standard. During the course, participants are observed and informally evaluated on participation, technical skills, and a variety of CRM skills, such as teamwork, situation awareness, decision-making, communication, and leadership.
Like WellCAP Plus, WellSharp Plus may be offered only by training providers accredited by IADC to do so.
NOTE: WellSharp 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.
