Wild Well Control, Inc., a Superior Energy Services company and a global leader in well control and engineering services, will resume 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 realizes that every state and country will be on different opening schedules, so WellSharp® Live, an IADC-approved distance learning training delivery option will remain available.

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 utilized 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, said, "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.
