IADC WellSharp® Live

IADC WellSharp Live®

To comply with stay-in-place regulations and travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, IADC introduced a new distance learning option for WellSharp Drilling and Well Servicing well control courses.

About the Program

WellSharp Live leverages technology to offer live, instructor-led training courses to support ongoing training and learning. This remote learning option maintains the same quality and integrity that WellSharp is known for, offering an interactive learning environment and real-time quality monitoring throughout the course, as well as course assessment proctoring.

The WellSharp Live delivery of the course is a temporary solution intended to help with training operations during these unprecedented times. When operations return to normal, in-person, instructor-led classes will resume as the only delivery option for WellSharp training.

IADC is currently accepting applications from training providers who wish to request consideration to deliver the WellSharp course via distance learning.

WellSharp Live® – Updates

WellSharp Live is IADC’s distance learning training delivery option for all WellSharp Drilling and Well Servicing well control courses. The virtual training option was launched 4 May 2020 as an alternative solution to support our training providers and the oil and gas workforce with the necessary training protocols during COVID-19 travel restrictions. This option continues to allow for instructor-led delivery, an interactive learning environment, and real-time quality monitoring throughout the course. Online proctoring services are utilized during course assessments.

IADC is continuously working to enhance program integrity. New WellSharp Live security measures that will impact your program will be announced in February 2021.

The following are updates to the WellSharp Live requirements:

1. The previous extension of WellSharp Live, scheduled to end 31 March 2021, has been lifted. Training providers can now offer virtual training as a permanent delivery option for WellSharp courses.
Training providers previously granted approval do not need to complete and submit a new exception form.

2. Restrictions on trainees eligible to attend WellSharp Live course have been removed effective immediately. All trainees are now eligible to attend virtual training through an approved WellSharp Live Training Provider regardless of trainee certificate expiration date.
