The WellSharp Live program, developed by the IADC, delivers rigorous, individualized training to professionals with well control responsibilities. It is a virtual instructor-led training option  that maintains the same quality and integrity as its predecessor, WellSharp, providing trainees with in-depth knowledge and role-specific skills crucial for managing well control​. The program has evolved into a long-term offering from a solution initially launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic's social distancing and travel restrictions​​.

Major energy companies including ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, Valaris and Precision Drilling, which are members of the IADC, accredited WellSharp Live training providers and are members of IADC’s WellSharp Advisory Panel.  The goal of the WellSharp Advisory Panel is ensuring a high standard of safety and competency within their workforce. This certification is integral in promoting a culture of safety and operational excellence within the drilling industry.

The collaboration with M&R Audit Group and the implementation of Proctor360’s technology will further bolster the integrity of the WellSharp Live certification process. By employing advanced security features like real time human proctoring, discreet recordings for each session of the test candidate’s webcam, screen activity, and audio, Proctor360 ensures that the integrity of the exam is upheld, providing a reliable and secure environment for candidates to demonstrate their competency​.

Gerardo Barrera, the Assistant Director for Accreditation at IADC, commented, "The partnership with Proctor360 is a significant stride towards upholding the high standards of WellSharp Live certification. Their advanced proctoring technology ensures a fair and secure examination process, reinforcing the integrity  of our certification in the industry."
