Wild Well Control, Inc., a Superior Energy Services company and a global provider of well control and engineering services, has announced the resumption of in-person class training for WellSharp® Drilling and Well Servicing well control courses on July 6, 2020 in their Houston, Tyler, and Odessa, TX; Oklahoma City, OK; Cannonsburg, PA; and Casper, WY locations. Other locations will be opened based upon demand.

As the US and countries around the world open back up, Wild Well says WellSharp® Live, an IADC-approved distance learning training delivery option, will remain available because every state and country will be on different opening schedules.

WellSharp® Live was developed as a temporary solution to support ongoing training and learning in the oil and gas industry during the COVID-19 crisis. Distance instructor led training has been an overwhelming success highlighted by the great attendance and with Wild Well Control approaching 30 WellSharp® Live classes delivered since its inception on May 4, 2020. The option allowed for remote instructor-led delivery, with an interactive learning environment, and real-time quality monitoring throughout the course. Online proctoring services were also utilised during course assessments.

As normal operations resume, IADC WellSharp® will revert to instructor-led, in-person classes as the primary delivery option for WellSharp® training, with WellSharp® Live available for locations constrained by COVID-19 regulations.

Kenny Smith, vice president, Well Control Training at Wild Well, says, “As one of the few accredited training providers in the industry, having issued 25% of all IADC certificates worldwide, we are committed to adapting and enhancing our well control courses. While the WellSharp® Live option ensures our WellSharp® Drilling and Well Servicing well control courses continue to be instructor-led and 100% IADC-accredited during these extraordinary times, we are anxious and excited to get back to in-person instruction with personal interaction and engagement.”

WellSharp® In-person courses will begin on July 6, 2020 and are available for scheduling and registration now at https://wildwell.com/well-control-training-courses/.
