NOVEMBER 2014: ADC VIRTUAL ACADEMY IS THE FIRST UK ONLINE TRAINING PROVIDER TO BE AWARDED IADC DIT ACCREDITATION...


The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), have just awarded their first UK DIT (Drilling Industry Training) accreditation to ADC Virtual Academy, a Scottish training provider, for their online course UNDERSTANDING DRILLING EQUIPMENT.

IADC DIT is an authoritative accreditation, recognised throughout the Oil and Gas community, as it certifies that the course being studied has satisfied a range of stringent IADC training criteria. Because of this the student can be confident that the training modules will draw upon a high level of industry expertise, and that the learning structure has been authored to ensure the transference of real practical knowledge.

“It’s very satisfying to be the first online training provider in the UK to be awarded this important accreditation,” commented Jason McGill, ADC Virtual Academy’s Business Development Manager. “Not only does it bear testament to our rigorous course management structures and insistence on content authored by oil field professionals, it also acknowledges the unique power of the online medium in delivering dynamically effective training to today’s digital generation.”

1st SEPT 2014: IWCF DRILLING WELL CONTROL LEVEL 2 IS NOW MANDATORY!


This will have a massive impact on hundreds of thousands of personnel who currently work on and offshore around the world, particularly members of the drill crew such as Roughnecks and Derrickmen as well as Drilling Engineers. In fact, anyone who is looking to progress their career by obtaining a Driller (Level 3) or Supervisor (Level 4) Well Control Certificate. From TODAY, IWCF Level 3, 4 and 5 courses cannot be commenced unless the Level 2 course has been completed.

Whilst being a significant development for ensuring the subject of well control is taught in a structured manner to instil a greater understanding, there are some significant adaptations required by both Drilling Contractors and Operators. The good news is that ADC Virtual Academy is the ONLY training provider accredited by the IWCF to offer LEVEL 2 as an ONLINE course. This represents not only a major advance for Oil and Gas training, but delivers a substantial advantage to Operators and pro-active Drilling Contractors wishing to get their personnel trained at the highest level whilst minimising operational disruption.
