Well Academy, formerly Welltrain provides accredited training and certification in IADC and IWCF well control course curriculum for the oil and gas industry

Well Academy, formerly Welltrain began operations in 1997, with the inception of the National Drilling and Well Control Program, with its first campus and drilling simulator based in Brisbane. The organisation has grown for more than 20 years, adding accredited training centres in Perth, Sydney, Papua New Guinea and Australian regional centres. Onsite training is also conducted on drilling rigs and in  many remote areas of the world.

The curriculum has been developed and maintained in conjunction with experienced drilling engineers and other industry professionals, providing a unique perspective for Welltrain’s students, compared to other well control training providers in the region.

Our talented team of trainers are dedicated to providing high quality training in all aspects of Well Control and they are supported by the largest fleet of drilling simulators in the Australasian region, including full size Drillfloor simulators and Cyberbase rig simulation.

The Pioneering use of Advanced Simulator technology in ERD and HPHT drilling operations has assisted operators to drill the ever more challenging wells required to access this regions energy reserves.
