 IWCF - International Well Control Forum

  • An associate member and "accredited" (as per the IWCF statement) assessment centre with the International Well Control Forum (IWCF). While IWCF training is Industry Recognised Training, it does not comply with Australian legislation for Nationally Recognised Training under the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011. An IWCF "certificate" is issued after the successful completion of an IWCF training course, but it is not classed as a qualification under Australian law.
  • The IWCF requires that candidates attend 5 day training courses every two years.
