The aim of the IWCF WIPC course is to enhance the candidate’s knowledge and understanding of well intervention pressure control and focuses on the duties and responsibilities of well servicing equipment operators & supervisors working in well completion, wireline, coiled tubing or snubbing operations.

There are two compulsory testing components:

  • Completions equipment
  • Completions operations

In addition, candidates must select at least one of the following three additional testing components:
