- Trainees must enroll no later than five business days prior to the first day of class.
- Trainees must attend classes using a desktop, laptop or tablet. Smart phones are not an option.
- The trainee's device must have a camera and microphone. The instructor must be able to see and interact with each trainee in real time.
- The trainee will be required to present government-issued identification periodically throughout the course.
- Your enrollment confirmation letter will include a link to download the course materials. Please make sure to download and print the recommended files before the first day of class.

Simulator familiarization will be done virtually via a pre-recorded video that will be shared with the candidates. The instructor/assessor will discuss the video in detail with the candidates. Further familiarization (such as choke handling) will be done when the candidate comes to the center within the 90-day period.
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.
The course is delivered through interactive lecturing supported by animations, group discussion and desktop exercises. A simulator exercise is typically included to apply theoretical knowledge gained in the classroom.
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:
- coiled tubing operations
- wireline operations
