Southeast College Partners to Offer Well Control Course

January 29, 2019

As regulations and industry requirements change so does Southeast College. The College has been working with Alberta based Well Control Group to bring The IADC WellSharp Drilling Supervisory course to Southeast Saskatchewan.  This course is an alternative to the Second Line Blow out Prevention course that local oilfield drillers and rig supervisors were previously required to travel to Alberta to take.

The IADC WellSharp Drilling Supervisory course is essential training for those working in wellsite supervisory roles and for office-based personnel that are primarily involved in the operational decision-making process and/or well design. It has been recognized by both the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC) and The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER). The course is designed for anyone working in a supervisory role and involved in the well design and operational decision-making process of drilling, such as a Drilling Supervisor, Superintendent or Company Man, Tool Pusher, OIM, or Rig Manager.

“We are pleased be able to bring this course to our Estevan Campus. By bringing the course to the participants, it cuts down on time and expenses for both the companies and their employees”, explains Larry Heggs, Business and Program Consultant with Southeast College. “We are always looking for new opportunities to help our local business to be more efficient with their training dollars and this course is an example of the work we are doing.”

Registrations are currently being accepted for this 5-day program starting February 25th. Interested course participants are encouraged to visit our website at or call 1-866-999-7372 for more information.

Southeast College is proud to offer innovative and flexible programming that encourages students to learn where they live.
